A Report and Basic Proposal to Provide Alaskan Manpower Entry into the Pipeline and Related Construction Skills via Technical Training, Immediate and Intermediate.
Bland, Laurel L.
To make policy makers and others more aware of possibilities for utilizing Alaskan manpower, information has been gathered on the manpower demand to construct the proposed 800 mile Alaska oil pipeline and its supporting system. The recruitment and training of chronically unemployed or underemployed workers (largely Eskimos and Indians) is being stressed. An eight week training program is planned in which a section of 48" pipeline is built and then dismantled under circumstances identical to the actual job. Objectives of the program are to train, under a cooperative and consolidated arrangement, workers acceptable to industry requirements in time to establish a firm hold on local hiring preferences; and to provide guidelines for future major programs and industry related vocational training. (Appendixes deal with union representation, personnel needs, the North Slope construction timetable, drilling crews, and program staffing. Educational needs and recommendations relative to adult basic education are also reported.) (ly)
