The Family Service and Learning Center program was masterminded during 1999 contract negotiations between the United Auto Workers (UAW) and Ford, according to SHRM Online.
The program will also include:
- before- and after-school preteen and teen programs
- adult and family education programs
- retiree programs
The FSLC program’s 24-hour childcare facilities will be located in and around Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Louisville, Ky.; and Kansas City, Mo.-areas with high concentrations of UAW employees.
The FSLC programs will also be available in more than 30 locations around the United States.
A concierge service called Can We Help? will refer employees to family-friendly dining places, help them purchase concert tickets, and offer references to a variety of home services.
