The Workers Technology Skills Development Act. Report Together with Additional Views To Accompany S. 1020. Senate, 103D Congress, 2d Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources.
This document provides an overview and minority viewpoints on Senate Bill 1020. S. 1020 would authorize the Department of Labor to make grants to nonprofit organizations to research, identify, and develop new and advanced workplace technologies and practices to promote the improvements of workers' skills, wages, working conditions, and job security. These organizations would then, in turn, disseminate such information to workers, workers' organizations, employers, state industrial extension programs, and manufacturing technology centers and provide technical assistance to encourage the use of such technologies and practices in the workplace. The report includes information on the background and need for the legislation, history of the legislation and votes in committee, explanation of the bill and committee views, cost estimates, regulatory impact, and additional views. In addition, some senators conclude that the proposed legislation is illegal because it violates provisions of the National Labor Regulations Act against labor-management cooperation. They propose an amendment called the TEAM (Teamwork for Employees and Management) Act as an alternative. (KC)
