May 6, 2008: Congressman Tim Ryan Announces TAA Eligibility for Indalex Employees
Washington D.C. – Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Niles), announced today that 335 Indalex workers in Girard and Niles displaced by recent job losses will receive important job training and placement assistance from the United States Department of Labor.
“These vital TAA benefits will help ensure that Indalex workers will get the training and job placement assistance they need to successfully find new work and secure the future for their families,” said Congressman Ryan.
The TAA program is a federal program that provides aid to workers who lose their jobs or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of increased imports. The program extends benefits including training for employment in another job or career, income support, job search allowance, and relocation allowances. Qualified workers may quickly return to employment through a combination of these services.
