Labor and Management Committee Creating Toolkit

Soliciting members’ comments about best practices that are working at their own sites, it plans to create a toolkit to explain VPP’s benefits to employers and workers.

NASHVILLE – Members of the VPPPA Labor and Management Committee asked the association’s members to sit down for interviews while they’re here at the 29th Annual National VPPPA Conference, to explain what best practices and leading indicators are working well at their own sites. The goal is to create a toolkit that can be shared with employers and their workforces to show the benefits of VPP participation and overcome doubts about its value.

The benefits include lower injury and illness rates, as well as better overall performance that makes VPP sites less likely to be closed when top management is weighing plant closures, one member said Aug. 26 during the Labor/Management Open Forum.

“You’re part of 2,300 companies across America representing a million workers. Sometimes what you do and say is passed on to other workers,” said Stephen Gauthier, the committee’s chairman, who is ending his two-year term as chair at this meeting. “There are things going on at your plants that aren't going on in other plants. We want to publish them. We want to know how VPP is working in your plant,” he added.
