Workers to get funds for retraining

Youngstown Vindicator


RG Steel workers will receive additional funds from the U.S. Department of Labor to receive retraining for new careers.

A National Emergency Grant for $41,347 has been awarded to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services to continue to provide reemployment services to workers affected by layoffs at six RG Steel/Severstal facilities including four in Ohio and two in West Virginia, as well as at Kinder Morgan, a Severstal supplier, located in Pennsylvania.

“RG Steel’s bankruptcy filing and subsequent layoffs have left hundreds of Ohioans without a paycheck or a clear future,” said U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. “We should do all we can to get these workers back on their feet. These funds from the Department of Labor will help ensure that additional displaced workers from RG Steel can get the retraining and job-search assistance needed to get back on their feet.”
