THE UAW-DAIMLERCHRYSLER NATIONAL TRAINING CENTER
The UAW-DaimlerChrysler National Training Center
has been a pioneer in efforts to
build the workplace of the future through continuous education. Jointly operated
by the United Auto Workers and DaimlerChrysler, the NTC oversees 30 programs that
hone job skills, empower workers, promote product quality and enhance the lives
of UAW members and their families. The UAW-DaimlerChrysler Child Development Center
in Huntsville, Ala. is a national model that provides quality care and educational
programs for children of workers at DaimlerChrysler’s nearby electronics plant.
Training programs are offered at the NTC, five regional centers and 52
DaimlerChrysler facilities around the country. The NTC’s Technology Training
Center in Detroit is providing a new generation of workers with the technical
skills they’ll need in the next century.
The National Training Center is proud to sponsor Livelyhood in honor of American
workers. Telling their stories enriches our lives and provides a mirror into
the dynamic world of work and fabric of our society. We salute their accomplishments,
values and ability to adapt to an ever-changing global economy.
