TAA Partnership Tools Publicize Trade Adjustment Assistance in Washington
The Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, through a grant funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, and in partnership with the Washington State Employment Security Department, has launched the TAA-Washington website, an online resource to help publicize the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program and its many benefits for potentially trade-impacted workers in Washington State.
The grant funds a toll free hotline (866-TAA-3399) to answer questions about TAA petition and benefits and to redirect laid off workers to their appropriate local WorkSource offices, and allowed the production and distribution of over 11,000 full-color brochures throughout the state's workforce system. It also funded the production of an informative, user-friendly video about the TAA program and its benefits.
