Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Iron Workers Statement on Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs Final Rule


Washington, March 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers' General President Eric Dean issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Labor’s Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs) final rule:

The International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers celebrates the construction industry exclusion from the Department of Labor’s IRAPs final rule.

Nearly 16,000 ironworkers who joined workers from other trades, socially responsible companies, and elected officials from both parties won this important protection for the high quality registered apprenticeship program training. IRAPs threatened to undercut seasoned registered apprenticeship programs in the building trades. 

The Iron Workers will defend the integrity of the construction exemption and remain vigilant to the threat IRAPs pose to manufacturing workers in our union working for thousands of American steel fabricators.
