Laid-off workers aided by new CU programs
ERIE, Pa. (10/23/09)--Erie (Pa.) General Electric FCU has developed several new programs to help members who are among the 1,500 workers laid off from the company’s Lawrence Park, Pa., plant. The credit union is offering free consultations with financial advisers, and is working with members one-on-one to restructure loans as needed (Life is a Highway Oct. 21). Also, the credit union has launched a website, LaidOffinErie.com, to help members and non-members find new employment, keep their finances in order, and plot new goals. The credit union is also offering a job-hunting seminar to the public, with an emphasis on interviewing skills and polishing resumes. The $187.6 million-asset credit union received TV coverage about the new website and its special programs (see link). In September, GE Transportation--builder of electric locomotives in Erie, announced that the 1,200 workers on temporary layoff were permanently without jobs. Also, the company announced that within the next two months, 230 hourly jobs and 50 salaried jobs would be cut, along with 200 lost jobs at an engine plant in Grove City, Pa.
