Production Standards in Union Settings – NOW ONLINE

About

An online hybrid institute

This three-week hybrid course explores the genesis of production standards, the scientific management theory of Fredrick Taylor, the fundamentals for setting production standards, and the characteristics of various systems in use today. Developing a union philosophy around the use of standards and how these systems intersect with grievance procedures and contract bargaining is also discussed.

This online institute utilizes class materials, short videos, activities, and student discussion in three one-week modules. Participants can access the course whenever it fits their schedule, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Participants will spend time working on their own during the weeklong modules, and there will be optional live Q/A sessions on Zoom on Nov 2, 9, and 16 from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. Central Time.
