NERCC Hosts Department of Labor
Posted by on

The New England Regional Council of Carpenters is proud to host the U.S. Department of Labor and their guests at the Carpenters Center in Dorchester today.

The US DOL is holding an educational event to promote apprenticeship programs and training as part of President Obama's challenge to double the number of Americans in apprenticeship programs. This session, focused on the construction industry, brings together almost 200 national and regional leaders.

Training in the skilled trades is an essential part to not only building quality, but retention of qualified workers. And when workers learn more, they earn more. We're happy to see the President focus on apprenticeship and proud to play a role in helping it succeed.
