 LABOR SECRETARY ANNOUNCES WORKPLACE DIVISION
 BEFORE FMCS NATIONAL LABOR MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE
 WASHINGTON, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Labor Secretary Lynn Martin, speaking before the National Labor Management Conference in Washington yesterday, stated, "The more we invest on people, the greater the 'pay-off' for the whole of our society." Martin, addressing more than 1,500 practitioners attending the bi-annual meeting on labor-management cooperation sponsored by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service and co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Association of Area Labor Management Committees and State and Local Government Labor Management Committee.
 Martin noted that "competitive realities require our workplaces and workers change constantly, be open to continued learning and adaption with emphasis on high standards of quality and customer satisfaction."
 Announcing the creation of a new organization in the Department of Labor to address the new needs of the workplace and the American worker, Martin stated, "This new organization will focus on high performance workplace practices, strategies for the quality and quantity of training, enhanced human resource development and encourage labor-management cooperation. The new organization will help in creating a workplace willing to learn to change and to grow," according to Martin.
 Martin cited the initial report of her Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) which focused on the need for better education and training and calls for a national commitment involving all segments of society to build a quality workforce more relevant to job placement and workers' needs.
 These and the initiatives of the president's Job Training 2000 program are to be integrated "into a vocational training system responsive to the needs of people, business and the national economy," Martin stated.
