New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational and Career Curriculum Development.
The curriculum was designed to provide a systematic way of instructing apprentices preparing for various trades in the area of industrial and labor relations which would provide the apprentice with working knowledge of employee-employer interaction and the processes involved. The core curriculum is developed in 10 learning modules which are self-contained instructional packages: (1) the role of American labor unions as representative of the worker, (2) union democracy and public policy--relations between unions and members, (3) the organization and staffing patterns of local unions, union finances, and decision-making processes, (4) highlights of American labor union history, (5) employer-employee union relations: individual or collective bargaining, (6) the law on collective bargaining, (7) collective bargaining--basic characteristics of the process, (8) negotiating labor-management agreements, (9) settling industrial and labor relations problems by arbitration, and (10) grievances and discipline--organizational justice. Each module contains information on educational objectives, course content, instructional suggestions, references, and background information. The objectives are based on expected terminal performance which the apprentice should exhibit at the end of the instruction. (Author/EC)
