By September 25, 2006General

By the time you read this we’ll be under way this morning with NAM President John Engler and Jim McCaslin, CEO of Harley-Davidson along with representatives from Ford, the United Steelworkers and the Manufacturing Skills Standard Council. They’ll be announcing the launch of a national certification program for skilled production workers, which will enable aspiring manufacturing workers to know precisely what skills they need to work in manufacturing and help prospective employers to identify qualified applicants.

Here’s a link to the announcement. Watch this space for more details later today and tomorrow.
