Summary

This document reports on a series of business-industry-union consultations initiated and coordinated by the Women's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor. Meetings were scheduled in five selected cities. These forums were structured around three main features: (1) a keynote slide-talk, which allowed for speed and effective presentation of a maximum amount of background information concerning women's employment, (2) a panel of government representatives, who described Federal, State, and local (if any) laws and programs prohibiting sex discrimination in employment and wage payments, and (3) a panel of employers and union representatives, who discussed affirmative action plans and programs for improving women's job status. Approximately 770 participants were at the five conferences: 200 each in Boston and Kansas City, 150 in Detroit, 140 in Atlanta, and 80 in Boise. Industry representation ranged from two-fifths to four-fifths of the conferees in all the cities except Detroit, where it constituted about one-third of the group. Men constituted the majority of participants in three cities. These conferences were set up as demonstration projects. (CK)
