The Illinois Laborers' & Contractors Joint Apprenticeship and Training Fund is sponsored by the Illinois Laborers' District Councils in conjunction with the Associated General Contractors of Illinois, Central Illinois Builders of AGC, Southern Illinois Builders of AGC, Northern Illinois Builders of AGC and individual contractors throughout the state who contribute to the Fund.
Since 1969, they have been providing training that enhances the skills of our Construction Craft Laborers while expanding the competitiveness of our union contractors.
On February 3, 1997, the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, awarded the Illinois Laborers' and Contractors' Training Trust Fund a Certificate of Registration for Apprenticeship Training for the trade of Construction Craft Laborer. The Training Program soon began implementing its first apprenticeship program, administered by the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC). The JATC is composed of twelve members, six appointed by the union and six by the employers.
Instructors are dedicated to giving quality training in everything from Asbestos Abatement, General Construction, and Hazardous Waste Removal to Welding. They train more than 5,500 Union Laborers a year and offer an apprenticeship program to qualified men and women who are interested in a career as a construction craft laborer with all the advantages of the Laborers' Union...good wages, great health and welfare benefits and lots of advancement opportunities.
