US DOL officials on island

FEDERAL labor officials are on island to assist the CNMI Department of Labor as it implements the Disaster Unemployment Assistance program.

Visiting officials included Consuelo Hines, USDOL Regional Trade Adjustment Assistance head for employment and training assistance. They visited Gov. Ralph DLG Torres on Tuesday to discuss the DUA program which allotted $11 million to help local workers who were laid off or whose working hours were reduced due to Typhoons Yutu  or Mangkhut.

The program was made possible in the CNMI after President Donald Trump  declared specific areas of the Commonwealth as disaster areas, and authorized Individual Assistance to individuals working in those disaster areas.

DUA funding is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

For more information, contact Division of Employment Services Director Eugene Tebuteb at 788-4180 or DES Labor Certification Supervisor James Ulloa at 788-4183.

Interested individuals may also visit the DUA Application Center at  Springs Plaza on Middle Road, Gualo Rai for one-on-one assistance.
