WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The IUE-CWA clarified some information released by Congressman Tim Ryan.
Ryan announced in a press release Friday that “approximately 250 laid-off workers at Delphi Automotive Systems, who were engaged in activities related to the production of automotive components” could receive Trade Adjustment Assistance. This certification includes on-site leased workers from the Bartech Group.
IUE-CWA said there are no pending layoffs for hourly workers at Delphi. The union said most of the layoffs are for the Bartech Group.
The union said there are eight skilled trades personnel from Delphi plants that are laid off currently, and those laid off workers will benefit from the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program, which involves job retraining, money to relocate and assistance with healthcare costs.
IUE-CWA President Edward Salus wanted to ensure workers that they’re working hard to keep jobs in Warren and Vienna, and that their jobs are safe.
