Pawtucket – The City has announced that it is working alongside the non-public safety unions on the WorkShare program, which will save the hard-working taxpayers’ dollars in these challenging times.
“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, revenues for the State and communities throughout Rhode Island have fallen,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “The implementation of the WorkShare program would allow the City to save dollars, retain its employees and, most importantly, continue the high quality services provided to our community. We thank the union leaderships for their partnership during these challenging times.”
The City anticipates providing the program over the next few months. Employees will have the option to opt in.
WorkShare, a program offered by the Unemployment Insurance Division in the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training (DLT), allows qualified employers to reduce the hours of work for employees rather than lay them off completely during a time of economic hardship.
