SECTION I - INTRODUCTION
The Sponsor enters this Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) with good faith for the purpose of
promoting equality of opportunity into its Registered Apprenticeship Program.
The
Sponsor seeks to increase the recruitment of qualified women and/or minorities for
possible selection into the apprenticeship program in the event women and/or minorities
are underutilized in the apprenticeship program. The Sponsor hereby adopts the
following nondiscriminatory pledge and the AAP.
This Plan is a supplement to the Apprenticeship Standards. Any changes made by the
Sponsor will become part of this written AAP, once approved by the Registration
Agency.
SECTION II - EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PLEDGE
The Sponsor commits to the following Equal Opportunity Pledge:
“The recruitment, selection, employment, and training of apprentices during their
apprenticeship, shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national
origin, or sex. The Sponsor will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in
apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under Title 29
of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 30.”
SECTION III - UTILIZATION AND ANALYSIS, GOALS AND TIMETABLES
In order to allow positive recruitment and full utilization of minorities and women in the
apprenticeship program, the Sponsor pledges to identify outreach efforts under Section
IV which will be undertaken. The purpose of the analysis is to determine the minority
and women’s labor force in the Sponsor’s labor market area. Once the labor force is
determined, the Sponsor can determine if deficiencies exist in terms of underutilization
of minorities and/or women in the occupations registered with the Registration Agency.
(See attached Affirmative Action Plan Workforce Analysis Worksheet)
SECTION IV - OUTREACH AND POSITIVE RECRUITMENT
The Sponsor’s AAP includes the following “checked” outreach and positive recruitment
efforts that would reasonably be expected to increase minority and women’s
participation in apprenticeship by expanding the opportunity of minorities and women to
become eligible for apprenticeship selection. Once those efforts have been checked,
the Sponsor will set forth the specific steps they intend to take under each
identified effort. The Sponsor will identify a significant number of activities in order
to
enable
it
to
meet
its
obligation
under
Title
29,
CFR
part
30.4(c).

and members, and to encourage such persons to take the necessary
action to aid in meeting its obligation under Title 29, CFR part 30.
E.
Engaging in programs such as outreach for the positive recruitment and
preparation of potential applicants for apprenticeships; where appropriate
and feasible, such programs will provide for pre-testing experience and
training. In initiating and conducting these programs, the Sponsor may be
required to work with other Sponsors and appropriate community
organizations. The Sponsor will also initiate programs to prepare women
and encourage women to enter traditionally male programs.
Appendix C - 3
2008 Master Group Non Joint Guideline Standards
F.
Encouraging the establishment and utilization of programs of pre-
apprenticeship, preparatory trade training, or others designed to afford

admission into the apprenticeship program.

action in the apprenticeship program.
H.

present minority and women apprentices and journeyworkers as
recruiters; career counseling; development of reasonable procedures to
ensure employment opportunity, including reporting systems, on-site
reviews, briefing sessions).

SECTION V - ANNUAL REVIEW OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PLAN
The Sponsor will make an annual review of its current AAP and its overall effectiveness
and institute any revisions or modifications warranted.
The review will analyze
(independently and collectively) the affirmative action steps taken by the Sponsor for
evaluating the positive impact, as well as the adverse impact in the areas of outreach
and recruitment, selection, employment, and training.
They will work diligently to
identify the cause and affect that result from their affirmative action measures. The
Sponsor will continually monitor these processes in order to identify the need for a new
affirmative action effort and/or deletion of ineffective existing activity(ies). All changes
to the AAP must be submitted to the Registration Agency for approval. The Sponsor
will continually monitor the participation rates of minorities and women in the
apprenticeship program in an effort to identify any type of underutilization. If
underutilization exists, corrective action will be immediately implemented. The goals
and timetables also will be reviewed periodically as determined by the Registration
Agency and updated where necessary.
