The Merit Apprenticeship Alliance is a NYSDOL approved Carpentry, Operating Engineer, Craft Laborer, Ironworker & Cement Finisher/Mason multi-employer apprenticeship program sponsor.
Under Title 29 CRF Part 29, the USDOL allows New Jersey to recognize NYSDOL registered apprenticeship program sponsors for the purposes of public work in New Jersey.
Alliance contractors are recognized as signatory to all five apprenticeship programs, employ qualified Alliance apprentices and meet bidding “apprenticeship requirements” such as those found in New York and New Jersey.
Only contractors who meet our strict quality criteria for safety, scope of work, capacity, history with public agencies, regulatory compliance, community involvement and employee management can qualify as signatories.
We believe that Alliance firms are among the “best of the best” and are an asset to public owners.
Check our “Contractor Status” page for a list of firms no longer affiliated with the Alliance.
