Transcript NOW LABOR TASK FORCE U-R-G-E-N-T Immediate Action Needed WOMEN IN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS The Department of Labor has come under increasing pressure to crack down on discrimination agairs* women as it relates to apprenticeship programs. Affirmative action is a proper means of correcting effects of past discrimination and may include setting of goals and quotas for employment of m inori ties. Current regulations in the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT) "prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin and sex.T They also require adoption of written affirmative action programs including the development of goals and timetables. However, there is no provision in the regulations which require that written affirmative action plans cover women. Furthermore, sponsors of apprenticeship programs are not compelled to establish and attain goals for women as is the case for minorities. In an effort to correct this discrepancy, the Secretary of Labor has announced a proposed regulation to amend BAT's rules concerning equal employment in apprenticeship programs. The amena- ment would include specific provisions requiring affirmative action for women. NOW, a chance for supportive public opinion exists.- Working women, women in business, women's groups and concerned citizens are urged to complete the enclosed form and (Pass some copies to others) and send everything to the address on the form letter. Time is of the essence—comments on the proposals will be received by BAT until November 14, 1977o If you do not have time to write before November 14, send any comments, questions, or suggestions to the NOW Labor Task Force or to the prime movers on this matter: Wider Opportunities for Women / From the NOW LABOR TASK FORCE ATTN: Ms. Nancy Rigby / 1324 N.
