To promote labor-management cooperation -- through the active involvement of its members and effective training, communications, and leadership -- to benefit the citizens of Central Ohio.
Columbus Area Labor-Management Committee (CALMC) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1986 as part of the Ohio Labor-Management Cooperation Program. The OLMCP was created under the Governor Richard Celeste to help dispel the image that Ohio was a "bad labor state."
Since then, CALMC has served to bring labor and management together in joint efforts to enhance workplaces, increase safety and productivity, increase employment, and avert layoffs.
The staff of CALMC consists of Dr. Jim Cowles. Executive
Director and Meredith Porterfield, Program Manager. Each has
extensive experience in working with organizations to help
improve their work system.
