This document is the first issue of a National Alliance of Business publication designed to present proven solutions, cutting-edge strategies, and comprehensive reference materials and to examine in depth in each issue a critical issue related to public/private employment and training partnerships. This first issue addresses one of the most significant problems facing the United States today--the unprecedented numbers of dislocated workers resulting from plant closings, mass layoffs, and other effects of the fundamental restructuring of the national economy. The Quarterly contains four sections. The first section presents an overview of the problem of dislocated workers, with some details on their numbers and possible approaches to helping them. Following this section, the 12"Bulletins" in this issue illustrate the new types of partnerships and programs being developed by companies, unions, states, communities, private industry councils, and other organizations working cooperatively to pool resources and expertise. Each "Bulletin" includes information on program planning, implementation, governance structure, funding, and results. Problems encountered and innovative solutions are highlighted. The last two sections of the Quarterly contain respectively a bibliography and background materials (state contracts for Title III dislocated workers programs and "WorkAmerica" reprints). (KC)
