UNION-SPONSORED TRAINING PROGRAMS WERE PROVIDED IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA TO UPGRADE SKILLS OF MARINE COOKS AND STEWARDS, SHIPS' RADIO OPERATORS, JOURNEYMAN PLUMBERS AND GASFITTERS, AND MEMBERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF ELECTRICAL WORKERS (IBEW). THESE PROGRAMS WERE THE ONLY COHESIVE UNION SPONSORED CURRICULA IN THAT AREA. MAJOR ASPECTS SUCH AS TRAINEE MOBILITY AND AGE, ATTITUDES TOWARD CLASSROOM SITUATIONS AND TESTING, PROGRAM COSTS AND FINANCIAL POLICY, INSTRUCTOR TRAINING, AND THE SCOPE AND APPLICABILITY OF TRAINING, WERE EXAMINED. FINDINGS INDICATE UNION PREFERENCE FOR APPRENTICESHIPS, LACK OF CLEAR TRAINING PURPOSE, DIFFICULTY IN RECRUITING TRAINEES, DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN UNIONS AND PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS ON TRAINER QUALIFICATIONS, AND ILL-DEFINED LABOR MARKET CONDITIONS. MOREOVER, THE MAIN DETERMINANT OF POLICY APPEARS TO BE THE UNION'S PRESENT OR EXPECTED SPHERE OF AUTHORITY. DOCUMENT INCLUDES 2 TABLES. DOCUMENT IS CHAPTER 4 OF RETRAINING THE WORK FORCE, BY IDA R.
