Labor Department details trade-assistance eligibility

The U.S. Department of Labor says approximately 3,000 workers from companies in 17 states, including some in the boating industry, are eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance.

Goetz Custom Technologies, of Bristol, R.I., is on the list of eligible companies, as is Caterpillar's facility in Pendergrass, Ga.

"The U.S. Department of Labor is committed to helping all workers, including those who are adversely impacted by trade," U.S. secretary of labor Hilda L. Solis said in a statement. "Through the Trade Adjustment Assistance program, we are leveraging opportunities for displaced workers to acquire the skills needed to secure good jobs in promising areas of their local economies."

Those who apply to the program may receive case management and re-employment services, training in new occupational skills and trade readjustment allowances that provide income support for workers enrolled in training. Some workers may also receive job search and relocation allowances, and the health coverage tax credit.
