Time Study - Easing the Pace of Work

5 Days

This course is a basic introduction for production standards reps and in-plant reps whose job it is to challenge management’s job standards. Participants receive hands-on and in-class experience to understand and learn to challenge the way that management sets production standards using both stop watch and predetermined time stand systems (PTS).  This course provides participants with a basic appreciation of what a union production standards person is expected to do. Instructors include experienced Unifor production standard reps and staff. 

Occasionally, Time Study programs are offered that are sector-specific, i.e. major auto, auto parts, etc. When these sector-specific programs are offered, the program schedule reflects it accordingly.
