Welcome to the Trade Adjustment Assistance Page, also known as TAA and TRA.
On April 30th, 2013, ABTU held the first TRA informational seminar. Roughly 50 people attended to learn more about the types of benefits available.
A member of the Missouri Career Center in Maryville, MO, was available to answer some of the questions.
We will continue to publish information, along with Frequently asked questions on this page.
The next information session is May 1st, at the Holiday Inn Express in Maryville MO. We will be hosting future informational seminars weekly.
