Government certifies 250 laid-off Delphi workers for assistance

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Approximately 250 laid-off workers at Delphi Automotive Systems have been approved for retraining help from the government.

The workers, who were involved in making automotive components, have been certified for Trade Adjustment Assistance, according to Congressman Tim Ryan.

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 TAA certification includes on-site leased workers from staffing agency, the Bartech Group.

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.

“These men and women lost their jobs through no fault of their own, and when this happens, it is our responsibility to give them the opportunity to get back on their feet,” said Congressman Ryan.

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.
