This morning the crew I'm working with was provided gloves to wear 100% of the time on the job. We were informed that the gloves were not "cut rated" and any injuries from cuts would not be covered. Is it the contractors duty to provide "cut rated" gloves or the apprentices/ journeymen?

If the employer provides safety equipment, such as gloves, I would assume that they have already done a hazard analysis. I suggest that you wear the gloves that you are given. This is not the place to get in to specific safety rules and requirements. I suggest you contact me directly and supply more detailed information.
