NEW April 11, 2021 - Sign up to attend an IAM Live Rapid Response Webinar April 28th that includes representatives from WorkSource and Unemployment Insurance to answer your questions. You can participate in this live webinar during work hours, as Boeing provides you 5 hours to learn about available resources and participate in these activities; however, the 5 hours can’t be taken all at once. Click on time for link to register
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.After layoff, you MUST file for your Category A recall rights through Worklife. This can be difficult to navigate so we are providing a step-by-step pdf to assist you. File ONLY for the jobs and locations you are willing to accept. Be aware that after recall, it will be a minimum of one year before you are allowed to transfer locations. Click here for the pdf.
NOTE: Washington State job search is optional at this time. As long as job search requirements are suspended, you may answer "no" to the job search question on your weekly unemployment claim and you do not need to request standby.
