Harbor Paper employees see more assistance from Worksource

July 12, 2013

WorkSource will be conducting a Rapid Response meeting for Harbor Paper Employees at the South Shore Mall Community room at 10am and 3pm on July 16th.

Ron Schmidt from WorkSource Grays Harbor said that the employees have been on lay off since Feb 22nd without much information on the health of the mill, and because of this, the local office is looking at options.

These meetings are only the first step in the process. WorkSource will be applying for Rapid Response Additional Assistance funding. WorkSource be conducting a survey to find out the amount of funding to apply for. A Trade Adjustment Assistance petition has also been prepared and is waiting for approval from the federal Department of Labor. The goal of funding options is to use federal funding made available for dislocated workers.

Schmidt said that while this is the first step of the process to assist workers, it does not immediately mean that funding is available.
