Information to help workers facing layoff
Experiencing a layoff is often the most difficult experience a worker will face during their career. During layoff, SPEEA is working and available to help represented employees with information, resources and assistance with the benefits they have earned.
SPEEA receives information regarding layoffs from the companies where represented members work. Information is used by SPEEA Contract Administrators to monitor the process and ensure the company complies with SPEEA contracts, their own procedures and recall processes.
The Layoff Resources web page at Ed Wells Partnership (EWP) includes upcoming class schedules for both internal and external job searches, as well as links to EWP career coaching and consulting specifically for engineers and technical employees.
