    Study reveals who is more likely to receive job-related training - By Meagan Fitzpatrick, CanWest News Service via Vancouver Sun
    Meanwhile, the study found being a member of a union was not necessarily a factor that determined whether or not a worker would engage in job-related training.

    However, said study author Cathy Underhill, it did increase the likelihood of getting employer support for those wanting to receive further training.

    For union members, the likelihood of receiving employer support for training was 3.8 times higher than for non-union members, the study found. "Often times you'll find that a union will lobby on behalf of its members to have training supported by their employer,'' noted Underhill. Support can include things like paying for training, flexible hours or offering transportation to training.

    But the union's presence was not a ``predictor'' of actually receiving the training, Underhill said.
