Minorities and Women in Apprenticeship Programs and Referral Unions. Equal Employment Opportunity Report--1978.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Washington, DC.
In 1978, there were almost 150,000 apprentices in the United States; 4 percent were women and 19 percent were members of minority groups. At the same time, there were more than two million union members in this country; 11 percent were women and 24 percent were members of minorities, according to the 1978 Equal Employment Opportunities Commission Report on the number of women and minorities in apprenticeship programs. Seven tables of statistical data constitute the report. Tables 1-4 break down the total number and minority group apprentices (total, graduates, dropouts, and applicants) (1) by sex and by trade or craft (for sixty-four trades or crafts); (2) by sex, by industry, trade or craft; (3) by sex, by state; and (4) by sex, by Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA). Tables 5-7 contain data on members of referral unions (local unions with 100 or more members which operate a hiring hall or refer persons to employment). Table 5 shows total and minority group membership by sex, by international union grouping, by international union; Table 6 shows the same data broken out by states; and Table 7, the same data by SMSA. Break-out for minority groups is by black non-hispanic, hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islands, and American Indian/Alaskan native. Appendixes contain instructions and reporting forms used to collect the data: Apprenticeship Information Reports (EEO-2, EEO-2E) submitted by 1,701 joint labor-management committees (JACs) which sponsored 3,973 trade or craft training programs and 924 corporate establishments which sponsored 3,121 programs; and Local Union Report (EEO-3) filled out by 2,688 unions.
