Knatz, Hilary Fleming, Ed.
This publication contains proceedings of a pre-White House Conference on Aging Activity held in May, 1980. The meeting was designed to (1) provide a labor/management forum for review and discussion of problems and issues arising out of a progressively aging population and workforce; (2) explore practical matters which can be resolved by employers or by unions individually, as well as those which might be resolved through collective bargaining; (3) identify national policy issues for the agenda of the White House Conference on Aging of 1981. Proceedings are summarized and organized according to these topics: background perspectives on employment and the older worker; the employment/retirement continuum; management viewpoints; organized labor viewpoints; employment/retirement flexibility; special issues of retirement; productivity and performance; and national policy issues for consideration by the White House Conference on Aging. Delegates, who included representatives of labor unions, management executives, observers from the White House, and staff from social service agencies, identified issues such as extension of mandatory retirement ages, flexible retirement policies, productivity as related to age, longer lifespans, the growing number of older workers, and Social Security benefits to be discussed further at the White House Conference.
