Into the Future!

The Montana AFL-CIO hosted the Into the Future: MT's Job Growth and Workforce Development Needs on May 22nd and 23rd at the University of Montana in Missoula. The presentation was on a strategic pre-planning for the ebb and flow of an evolving economy.

Transitional workers are those who are either underemployed or working in declining industries where eventual job transition is inevitable to achieve a family sustaining income with job security. Montana must construct a system of gradual workforce transitions and move away from an emphasis on reactions to industry events. 

The findings of a groundbreaking two year study on the past 15 years of Montana's evolving workforce were presented along with projections for the coming 15 years. The conference identified education and training needs to move workers into sustainable jobs in emergent industries. A focused project on Montana's reclamation/restoration site inventory, case studies, and cutting edge training was presented as a road map for unlocking job potential.

For those in attendance, thank you for joining us. Available to everyone below is a link to all of the presentations and data that was presented. If you would like a thumb drive of this information please call the Montana State AFL-CIO at 1-406-442-1708.
