Title:Unions as partners: Expanding the role of organized labor in workforce development
Organization:Jobs for the Future
Short Description:While organized labor has played a small role in the public workforce development system to date, union involvement can be integral to the reemployment of the American workforce. This publication highlights several workforce partnerships in which organized labor has played a significant role.
Annotation:The need has never been greater to ensure that people are productively employed—not simply in any job, but a job with a future. This is the goal of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, a public-philanthropic initiative dedicated to creating, applying, and evaluating new ways to rebuild our economy by better preparing our workers. While organized labor has played a small role in the public workforce development system to date, union involvement can be integral to the reemployment of the American workforce. This publication highlights several workforce partnerships in which organized labor has played a significant role. It demonstrates why such a role should be encouraged within, and beyond, traditionally unionized industries, and suggests how policymakers and practitioners can support an expansion of that role for unions.
