Workers union applies for grant to help ease layoffs

YAKIMA, Wash. - As Yakima Resources prepares to close the doors of its plywood mill for good, the workers union is applying for a grant to help employees get back on their feet.

According to the Western Council Industrial Workers Union, they are currently in the process of applying for a Trade Adjustment Assistance Grant with the Department of Labor.

If it's approved, the grant would re-train employees impacted by the closure.

The plywood mill will officially close on August 5th.
