Improving Apprenticeship: A Pilot Study of Employer and Union Reactions to Foreign Training Practices.
The study investigates on a pilot basis employer and union reactions to selected foreign-inspired changes in the American apprenticeship system. Recent developments in European apprenticeship are reviewed, and possible policies based on these foreign developments are proposed. The reactions of employers to these policies are assessed through a mail questionnaire sent to firms located in the Chicago area. Union reactions are gleaned from personal interviews with local union officials in the same location. The study recommends the establishment of an experimental apprentice wage subsidy program and the expansion of advisory assistance to the operators of apprenticeship programs. (Author)
