Ex-Navistar workers eligible for job assistance

All former local Navistar International Corp. workers – including those assigned by staffing agencies – are eligible for the Trade Adjustment Assistance program, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development announced Wednesday.

Navistar’s on-site leased workers were directly employed by Populus Group, Technical Training Inc., PPP Careers, Otek Professional Services, Staffmark Inc. and Mid-States Technical.

The TAA program helps workers who lose jobs or hours because production was moved overseas or an employer couldn’t compete with low-cost foreign imports. The two-year Navistar certification was issued by the U.S. Labor Department on Nov. 21 and applies to development and technology center workers who lose jobs or hours on or after Oct. 21.

TAA benefits include training, job search assistance, relocation allowances and weekly pay after unemployment insurance benefits run out.
