Ontario opens employment center to aid fired Hymer workers

Listen to this story

KITCHENER, Ontario — As a pair of city-run support hubs for terminated Erwin Hymer employees wrap up this week in Kitchener and Cambridge, a longer-term employment center will open its doors this week, The Record reported.

The center will help hundreds of former employees of the bankrupt RV manufacturer find new jobs.

On Monday, the province’s Erwin Hymer action center will launch in partnership with the local United Way two months after Erwin Hymer Group North America went into receivership and terminated all 850 workers in Cambridge and Kitchener.

The center has a six-month contract with the province.

The full story is available in The Record.
