SPEEA, IAM Union Petition Results in Additional Help for Laid-Off Members

SPEEA/Local 2001 recently teamed up with the International Association of Machinists (IAM) 751 in filing for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), also known as Trade Act, with the U.S. Department of Labor, resulting in additional federal support for SPEEA and IAM members in Washington state and Oregon who were laid off by Boeing. “We are happy to see our petition to support laid off SPEEA members was recently approved by federal administrators,” said Ryan Rule, SPEEA president. “We know SPEEA members continue to be displaced, in part, due to global trade pressures and international economic conditions. TAA is a critical tool to aid in their return to the workforce – and most importantly, provide their families an additional layer of resources to maintain their economic security.”
