[Excerpt] This report summarizes and analyzes a survey of the training and work restructuring occurring in large unionized firms. This survey provides the most comprehensive answers to date to the following questions for large unionized workplaces: What kinds and amounts of training do workers receive in American firms? How much change occurred in training amounts and types from 1980 to 1990? Why do some firms provide more training than other firms? What is the amount of work reorganization underway in these workplaces and what are the links between work reorganization and training activities? Do firms perceive shortages in adequately trained new hires?
