The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) is preparing to grant approximately $500,000 to promote best practices in labor-management cooperation as a way to improve collective bargaining and mitigate labor-management disputes. FMCS is encouraging applications to address the shortage of skilled workers for U.S. manufacturing jobs and in other vital economic sectors. Of special interest are applications that train for high-tech jobs that will emerge from an economy where new technologies such as artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, and Internet-based transactions are commonplace.
Grant applications may be submitted until May 31, 2018. Application information and instructions for completing the process can be obtained online at the Agency’s Web site: www.fmcs.gov or you can contact the FMCS Grants Office at (202) 606-8181.
