Mitsubishi Workers have not been taking great advantage of education workshops on worforce issues since the layoffs of about a thousand workers at the plant in Normal last year. But, Charlie Schlenker finds out there is a lot still being offered. Lindsay Thompson is a customized training coordinator at Heartland Community College.
Mitsubishi workers can call to register for workshops at 268-8160, or go to links on the community college front page at heartland.edu. About another 200 workers face layoffs later this year when the plant is set for full shutdown.
