Fulmer Electrical Training
AS REQUIRED UNDER TITLE 29, CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS, PART 30
AMENDED MAY 12, 1978
DEVELOPED IN COOPERATION WITH THE
U. S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
OFFICE OF APPRENTICESHIP
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 AAP 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).
