At FMCS Future@Work Conference, Panel Spotlights Success of FMCS Grants Program

An $80,000 labor-management partnership grant in 2011 from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service to the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and a group of some 60 employers gave an important boost to the IAMAW Local 701 Training Center in Carol Stream, IL. The grant money helped create a state-of-the-art automotive apprenticeship training program. In succeeding years, the number of employers participating in the apprenticeship training program has grown from 60 to more than 500; more than 400 courses have been taught, and the program is still growing.
