An industry partnership is a multi-employer collaborative effort that brings together management and labor around the common purpose of improving the competitiveness of a cluster of companies or organizations producing similar products or services and sharing similar supply chains, critical human resource needs, infrastructure requirements, business services, and/or retention/recruitment challenges.
The purpose of supporting existing partnerships or organizing new ones is to concentrate attention and resources on particular clusters of industries that provide good wages and benefits, have the greatest potential for economic growth and/or which face serious challenges to growth or retention. By bringing together employers and their workers the public sector can learn significantly and qualitatively more about the opportunities and challenges facing a set of similar companies.
