AFL-CIO Report Highlights Center’s Role Promoting Transit Training

Posted November 2017

A new report released by the AFL-CIO Working for America Institute and the Jobs with Justice Education Fund, highlights the important role played by workforce intermediary partnerships. The report details examples where workforce intermediaries are making a difference among several sectors of the economy.

Workforce intermediaries are programs and organizations that work with stakeholders in a particular industry to customize and facilitate training and/or apprenticeship services, mobilize joint funds and industry expertise to help improve diversity among (and access to) meaningful careers and career advancement, and work across labor-management divides to maximize industry buy-in and credibility.

The Center is featured for its three transportation training consortia partnerships (Signals, Rail Car, and Elevator/Escalator maintenance) as well as its efforts helping agencies to develop and build out registered apprenticeships for bus maintainers and transit coach operators. The Center’s ongoing outreach work focused on women, youth, and veterans is also highlighted.
