Local employers from the OYAP Manufacturing Advisory Committee (MAC) continue to struggle with recruiting skilled labour in the Precision Metal Cutting (PMC) trades. General Machinists, Tool & Die Makers and Mould Makers. At a recent MAC meeting we learned that companies are purchasing other companies not to buy out their competition but to acquire their talent. This is an interesting indication of the need for skilled labour.
Our MAC members continue to see great value in the OYAP Precision Metal Cutting Apprenticeship Program and would like to offer the program again during the 2017-18 school year.
