Leaders at Northeast Indiana (NEI) Works have remained in contact with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) about the impact that the impending UAW contract decision may have on local communities, as many jobs depend on the production of automobiles and passenger trucks in our region. Below are several items that may be beneficial for affected communities, employers, and workers.

Employers and their employees may view the video linked above to learn where and how to report their Return to Work (RTW) date as well. The time mark of 2:22 is the point in the tutorial that discusses reporting RTW dates. If the claimant reports their RTW date correctly, and if it is within 60 days of their separation, they should be placed on a work search waiver and not selected for Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) participation.

UI questions or issues must be addressed with the Indiana DWD by calling 1-800-891-6499 or by visiting one of the following WorkOne Northeast career centers:
