The JATC approved the following changes (changes are bolded and italicized) to the Statement of Policy, Section III. OJT Work Reports, Part B. to be effective March 1, 2018:
Any report received in the JATC office after the tenth (10th) day of the month is late. Apprentices will not receive their pay advancement to the next period (classification) of apprenticeship until all of their late or missing work monthly work reports are turned in to the JATC. Apprentices will be assessed a penalty of a one month delay in receiving their pay advancement to the next period (classification) of apprenticeship for each monthly work report that is submitted late.
