In 2017, our community-labor coalition in California signed a landmark CBA with electric bus manufacturer BYD. The CBA is supporting the creation of good, family-sustaining jobs through deep investments in pre-apprenticeship and training programs. BYD committed to a goal of recruiting and hiring 40 percent of its workers from populations facing significant barriers to employment, including women, African Americans, justice-impacted individuals and veterans. 

Through this CBA, BYD is implementing the country’s first electric bus apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship program.
