Webinar: What Does the Biden DOL’s Controversial Apprenticeship Proposed Rule Mean for ABC Members and Chapters?

WHAT DOES THE BIDEN DOL’S CONTROVERSIAL APPRENTICESHIP PROPOSED RULE MEAN FOR ABC MEMBERS AND CHAPTERS?
Tuesday, January 30, 2024  | 2:00PM – 3:15PM  |  Virtual
**This is an ABC National webinar. Please register here. ABC members only.**
On Dec. 14, 2023, the Biden administration announced a 779-page U.S. Department of Labor proposed rule that would make significant and controversial revisions to the National Apprenticeship System. The proposal was widely criticized by ABC and other stakeholders for its additional red tape, costs and pro-union and controversial provisions that are expected to discourage new and existing participants in the government-registered apprenticeship system. The proposed rule will ultimately undermine investments in America’s infrastructure, clean energy and manufacturing construction projects.

Maury Baskin and Ben Brubeck will provide an overview of the proposal and will explain how it will affect ABC members, ABC chapters, apprentices and other industry stakeholders participating in government-registered apprenticeship programs. Participants will learn about the many problematic and limited beneficial provisions of the proposal and receive instructions about how to participate in regulatory and advocacy efforts to help improve this extensive regulation.

Learn about ABC’s comments and concerns on the proposal and what to expect from the final rule expected to be published in 2024. Participants will also learn more about other significant Biden administration regulations overhauling the Davis-Bacon Act and government-registered apprenticeship system that will impact ABC members, ABC chapters, CTE and apprenticeship providers and other stakeholders.

Ben Brubeck is ABC National’s vice president of regulatory, labor and state affairs. In this role, he works with his team to shape policy on local, state and federal issues important to the construction industry, and represents ABC before lawmakers, the media, construction industry executives and stakeholders.
