Laid-off workers of True Textiles get TAA Certification
Mar '09
U.S. Senators Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced that the U.S. Department of Labor has certified Trade Adjustment Assistance for True Textiles, Inc. in Guilford. This ensures assistance eligibility for all workers who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after December 15, 2007. Formerly known as Interface Fabric, Guilford and LG Saulter Division, True Textiles, Inc. laid off the workers as a result of increased competition from foreign fabric producers.

"In this troubled economy, many hard-working people have lost their jobs and, through no fault of their own, have been forced to face the harsh realities of finding a job in a crowded market," Snowe and Collins commented in a joint statement. "This TAA certification is critical to help these workers find and obtain employment that will help restore their quality of life and strengthen our economy."

Trade Adjustment Assistance is a federal program established under the Trade Act of 1974. The purpose of TAA is to aid workers who lose their jobs or whose hours of work and wages decrease as a result of trade-related foreign competition. Following the approval of a TAA petition, the displaced workers will be eligible for employment training in another job or career, income support, job search allowance, and relocation services for individuals who obtain jobs outside of their normal commuting area.

The True Textiles story started over 150 years ago with the opening of several independent water-wheel mills along the East Coast of the United States. These mills were the earliest production plants of four companies that would each build its own international reputation for textile quality and innovation.
