Actions Taken to Soften the Blow by Those Affected by Carrier Corporation Move

Governor Mike Pence outlined the State of Indiana’s actions that began last week as soon as news broke that Carrier Corporation and United Technologies would relocate jobs and operations to Mexico. Neither Carrier nor United Technologies provided any advance notification to the State of Indiana that they were moving operations. The Indiana Department of Workforce Development has been offering immediate rapid response services such as immediate onsite contact with employer and employee union representatives, assessment of worker job function and skills, matching employee skills with open positions in local community, providing training as necessary to impacted employees to help them gain new employment, assisting in the application for additional benefits and career counseling and individual case management for each employee. Any affected Hoosier can visit to find their nearest WorkOne location.
