The Department of Labor has announced a $5,990,725 National Emergency Grant supplemental award to continue re-employment services for more than 4,800 workers directly affected by the closure of New United Motors Manufacturing Inc. in Fremont, Calif., and 39 suppliers affected by the closure of NUMMI's plant.
The grant, awarded to the California Employment Development Department, will provide training and support services to help these workers prepare for and obtain new jobs in their state. Some will receive assistance under the grant in conjunction with other services provided in the form of Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits.
