Trade Adjustment Assistance granted for workers laid-off from Warren Steel Holdings

Posted: Updated:
CHAMPION TWP., Ohio -

Workers laid-off with the closure of Warren Steel Holdings are eligible for government assistance as they work to find new jobs.

According to a news release from Congressman Tim Ryan's office, Warren Steel Holdings employees have been certificatied for Trade Adjustment Assistance.

The release says the assistance is being offered to former employees who were engaged in activities related to the production of semi-finished steel billets, including on-site leased workers from Accountemps and Alliance Solutions in Warren, Ohio.

TAA will assist workers in their search for re-employment through income support, training, assistance with healthcare premium costs, employment and case management services, and may include job search and relocation allowances.

The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program is a federal program that assists US workers who have lost their jobs as a result of foreign trade.

The program provides trade-affected workers with opportunities to obtain the skills, resources, and support they need to become reemployed.

According to Ryan's office, Trade Readjustment Allowances will provide income support while workers are participating in full-time training, which may include classroom and/or on the-job training, customized training, post-secondary education, prerequisite education or coursework and remedial education.

The cost of training is paid to the training provider by the State with TAA Program funds.

The steelmaker notified the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services in January that it will not resume operations this year as had been hoped, leaving 162 employees without jobs.

Owners blamed the decision to close on what they call unforeseeable business circumstances, including rapidly deteriorating economic conditions, loss of significant customer demand, and loss of continued financing.
