Revisiting SharedWork Ohio as UAW Strike Lingers


As the United Auto Workers union strike continues, some manufacturers in the auto supply chain have raised concerns they may be forced to temporarily lay off employees due to reduced demand. The OMA reminds members about SharedWork Ohio, a voluntary layoff aversion program, which helps employers retain skilled workers while navigating reduced business activity by uniformly reducing employees’ hours. Participating workers maintain their employment and receive unemployment insurance benefits. Learn more about this program, which was established during the Great Recession with the support of the OMA. Meanwhile, let OMA staff know of any strike-related challenges your business is facing by emailing our development and member services directors Nick Miller and Nate Mays. 9/20/2023
