Labor Committee to Tour Registered Apprenticeship Sites

Updated: Mar 22, 2023

Rep. Josh Cutler, House chairman of the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development, will host a tour of area apprenticeship sites to highlight new legislation aimed at modernizing the state’s registered apprenticeship programs.


The visit will be held Thursday, March 30, showcasing apprenticeship programs at the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 17, Plumbers Union Local 12, and Cengage, an education technology company.


“Apprenticeships offer a tried and tested career pathway to develop our future workforce,” said Rep. Cutler. “Employers win by tapping into new pools of qualified workers and apprentices get hands-on work experience, classroom instruction, and a certificate –– not to mention a paycheck. Promoting registered apprenticeship programs will pay big dividends for the Commonwealth’s workforce.”


Elevating and modernizing the state’s registered apprenticeship programs is the goal of Rep. Cutler’s legislation, H. 1857. The site visits offer a great opportunity to learn more about apprenticeships in person and hear from employers and workers about their own experiences.
