If you are working on a state funded construction project, you will most likely need to employ apprentices!

When you are awarded a public works contract, there will be a few requirements, two of the most common are:

1. Notifying apprenticeship committees that you have been awarded work (with a signed DAS140 form)

2. Requesting the dispatch of apprentices at the appropriate time (with a signed DAS142 form)

The Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) provides assistance to contractors who need to employ apprentices on public works projects and may grant exemptions to the requirement to hire apprentices.

California now has 20 different statutes that authorize a public entity to require a contractor to use a skilled and trained workforce to complete a contract or project, and require that the commitment to use a skilled and trained workforce be made in an enforceable agreement.

To help meet the skilled and trained workforce requirements, Union and Management members of the Laborers Joint Apprenticeship Committee have established a procedure where Employers can sponsor Journeypersons into the Laborers Apprenticeship Program. Under this procedure, Journey persons who are registered as Apprentices with the Laborers Apprenticeship Program will be given credit for past experience and training and may be able to graduate from the program in six months! The Journeyperson will also be required to complete OSHA 30 and First Aid/CPR through the Laborers Training School, safety comes first!

The Laborers Apprenticeship Program will provide the contractors with the required forms (enrollment application, State Indenturement Form and Federal Indenturement Form) to request enrollment of its Journeypersons in the Apprenticeship Program. The Apprenticeship Program regional staff, Apprenticeship Coordinators and/or Local Union will be in communication with contractors regarding required paperwork, review/ approvals and course scheduling.

Note: To submit hours to be reviewed and to be indentured, the sponsored worker must have over 4,000 hours of construction experience.

Request to Indenture Experienced Journeyperson Form:

Contractors signatory to the Master Labor Agreement may request/sponsor an experienced Journeyperson, with a minimum of 4,000 hours reported to the Trust Fund, by completing this Request to Indenture form. Shortly after you submit your request, you will be contacted to complete the indenturing process.
