Apprentice Funds

The future of the labor movement starts with the apprentice schools affiliated with our labor union clients. Apprentice funds are E.R.I.S.A. funds but they have special needs and requirements. The attorneys of Gregorio ♦ Marco have the expertise necessary to advise apprentice funds as to the regulatory requirements concerning the selection process, education process, and on-the-job training.

The firm serves as general counsel to the Illinois State Apprentice Conference Committee, which provides bi-annual educational training and information to affiliated apprentice schools. The firm also serves as counsel to numerous apprentice programs and provides advise in all areas potentially affecting such schools, including matters of contract, employment, EEOC compliance, and Department of Labor review.

The future of the labor union movement lies with their apprentice schools and Gregorio ♦ Marco offers a way for those schools to meet their goals within the framework of a complex legal environment.
