Apprenticeship Expansion Task Force's Members Announced

An executive order from President Donald J. Trump called for the secretary of Labor to establish a Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion that will identify strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeship programs are insufficient.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta this week announced the members of the President's Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion. The task force represents companies, trade and industry groups, educational institutions, and labor unions, with its members having experience in addressing the nation's skills gap, according to DOL.

"Expanding apprenticeships will help Americans learn the skills they need to fill jobs that are open right now and in the future. I am pleased to see business leaders, unions, educational institutions, and industry groups come together to help the American worker," said Acosta. "The members of the Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion will provide varied perspectives that will help guide the Administration’s strategy on growing apprenticeship programs nationwide. I am grateful for their participation in this important effort."

This follows an executive order from President Donald J. Trump to expand apprenticeships in America. It called for the secretary of Labor to establish a Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion that will identify strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeship programs are insufficient.

The task force's members include Acosta; Education Secretary Betsy DeVos; Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross; Michael Bellaman, president and CEO of Associated Builders and Contractors; Joshua Bolten, president and CEO of the Business Roundtable; Cari Dominguez, director of Manpower Inc.; Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Andrew Liveris, executive chairman of DowDuPont; Douglas J. McCarron, general president, United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America; Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association; and Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers.
