The U-S Department of Labor approved a grant Wednesday that will provide funds for employment and training services for 337 workers affected by recent layoffs at the Lordstown General Motors plant.

On January 17, 2017, General Motors laid off more than 1,200 employees at the Lordstown plant. Hundreds more workers from three other auto suppliers also lost their jobs because of the cutbacks.
