Ryan, James T.
This manual provides guidelines for developing and implementing employee educational programs with the cooperation of unions and management. It establishes the need for such programs by explaining the current and future demographics of the workplace, then suggests ways to determine the need for education in any particular company. Information follows on structuring programs, using consultants, and setting up a formal partnership between unions and management. Types of training are described, and the curriculum content and logistics of training are discussed. Finally, student recruitment, costs, funding sources, and evaluation methods are outlined. Appendixes include a bibliography, lists of sources concerning cooperative programs and funding, features of a selected union-management agreement, and a description of a union training and upgrading fund.
