Welcome back,

(formerly Manpower Development Committee)

The Workforce Development Committee is concerned with maintaining and expanding skill as the cornerstone of this specialty contracting industry. Provision of an adequate supply of skill is vital to the industry and production of skill in this complex mechanical trade demands supervision, variety of experience and instruction. The continuing review of conditions and factors bearing upon effective support and execution of activities that meet this basic requirement of the industry is within the scope of this Committee. The Committee makes recommendations to the Board of Governors and provides leadership in promoting these recommended programs.

The National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee recommends training programs to the industry for adoption. Labor and management have found that these programs and recommended procedures can best be handled cooperatively by local apprenticeship and training committees which are equally represented by both parties. NECAs Workforce Development Committee members also serve as the management representatives to the NJATC.
