MOSES LAKE - With Mitsubishi Heavy Industries ceasing flight test operations of its SpaceJet project in Moses Lake, SkillSource and its partners in Moses Lake is holding a rapid response event on Monday and Tuesday of next week for affected employees.
Two online sessions are available next week: from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday and 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday.

The webinars will provide information about WorkSource programs and services available to laid-off employees, including unemployment insurance benefits, worker retraining options, health care continuation, skills assessment and career planning services and job search support.

Mitsubishi has not disclosed the number of employees affected, but hundreds of jobs in the state are expected to be cut as the company slashes its SpaceJet budget. A “small crew” of employees will be retained in Moses Lake to store and maintain the four flight test aircraft at the Grant County International Airport.
