CAWP is adequately represented on all heavy and highway union joint apprenticeship committees operating in western Pennsylvania. The Association accomplishes this by appointing contractor members as committee members to each of these programs, which include the six basic trade unions: Carpenters, Cement Masons, Laborers, Operating Engineers, Pile Drivers and Teamsters. These committees are responsible for providing skilled construction workers through apprenticeship and training programs.
