An Experiment in Using Lay-Off Time for Improving Workers' Advancement Potential. Report on Two Years of the Job Advancement Training Program by W. T McGrath( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Job Advancement Training Program (jat) was an experimental demonstration project to determine whether workers, employers, and community agencies would perceive value in and respond positively to non-skills training opportunities offered to workers during periods of temporary layoff, and also to determine if the training seemed to have increased promotion possibilities for the enrollees. Conclusions from the project experience show that temporarily laid-off workers (the primary target group) will not enroll. The program attracted relatively young and inexperienced workers on indefinite or permanent layoff. The target group perceived no job-related benefits in such training, because in most industries worker advancement and promotional systems are negotiated through the collective bargaining process which ensures advancement on the basis of seniority. Employers response to the jat concept was minimal as they could not perceive any area of self-interest. Findings suggest that application of such a program would be of potential benefit only in industries where internal labor market practices are not ridigly tied to a worker's seniority. (Mf)

An Experiment on the Utility and Viability of Providing Non-Skills Training to Underutilized, High Seniority Workers in the Canning Industry. an Industry-Specific Approach to Lay-Off Time Training. Final Report, July 1, 1972-August 31, 1973 by W. T McGrath( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experimental project was conducted between July 1972 and August 1973 to offer adult basic education to high seniority, unskilled employees laid off because of the seasonal nature of their jobs in the fruit and vegetable canning industry in northern California. The project's purpose was to demonstrate that layoff time training (lott) would be viable and useful when conducted in an industry with specific screening criteria. The criteria are an advancement system based not only on seniority but also on qualifications, a labor market allowing for outside hiring of skilled and semiskilled workers, a significant number of high seniority employees who are not advanced to better jobs because they lack qualifications they could receive through lott, and a significant number of workers who experience layoff periods which would enable them to participate in lott programs. The training program included English as a second language, basic education, and advancement related counseling. Over 400 workers participated, and both unions and management actively supported the program. It was concluded that the screening criteria may well be predictive of whether or not a lott program will be successful in a given industry. One measure of the project's success was that through a collective bargaining agreement the unions and management elected to finance its continuation. An appendix includes statistical tables. (Lms)
