Continued Work

Navigate to the 2009 OPWG Wages and Benefits Committee Plan for a complete plan of this committee’s intended work leading up to and during the 6th IFOMC (Portland, USA; July 2009). The primary purpose with presenting this plan is to chart this committee’s intention for conducting Focused Interviews, so interview participants may have the opportunity to reference objectives, scope, and potential questions for facilitating the actual interview process.
