Workforce Reduction Committees. A Labor/Management Approach.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.; Vermont State Dept. of Employment and Training, Montpelier.; Department of Labor, Washington, DC.
This resource guide outlines the labor/management approach supported in the new legislation regarding worker dislocation and training. It provides companies and unions with the initial information necessary to establish a labor/management committee. Section 1 discusses the benefits to employees and employers of establishing a work force reduction committee in advance of worker layoffs. Section 2 focuses on the financial resources available to support the work of the committees and dislocated worker assistance services. They include federal/state funds, employer/union contractual funds, and funds for training and reemployment services that have been earmarked by many companies experiencing major reorganization. Section 3 presents a series of steps in a typical sequence for formation of a committee. It recommends the accomplishment of several steps during each meeting, so that the entire process can be completed in three or four short meetings. Section 4 outlines the essential elements of a committee and the specific duties (roles and responsibilities) of the chair and members. The final section addresses the first steps in developing a program plan and identifying services. A resource and contact list is appended. (YLB)
