SWACCA Joins CEA in Sending a Letter to the House in Support of the National Apprenticeship Act of 2020

Today, the Signatory Wall and Ceiling Contractors Alliance (SWACCA) joined our allies in the Construction Employers of America (CEA) in sending a letter to members of the House of Representatives expressing support for the National Apprenticeship Act of 2020 (H.R. 8294).

In the letter, SWACCA notes that H.R. 8294 would expand and strengthen privately funded registered apprenticeship programs by codifying standards for registered apprenticeship, youth apprenticeships, and pre-apprenticeship programs. The letter notes that this important legislation will “provide consistency in quality standards and worker protections across all registered apprenticeship programs, expand workforce development and apprenticeship training opportunities, and ensure candidates for these programs have the skills necessary to successfully complete these rigorous programs.”
