13 November 2023- U.S. Representatives David Trone, Emilia Sykes of Ohio, Nikki Budzinski of Illinois, and Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio introduced the bicameral Fair Warning Act of 2023, legislation to update the WARN Act and hold employers accountable while also giving workers and communities the notice they need to best prepare for and recover from employer decisions that cost them their jobs. 

“When Verso abruptly closed Luke Mill a few years ago, they blindsided employees and sent a shock wave through the town of Luke and our entire state,” said Rep. Trone, a member of the Congressional Labor Caucus. “Workers built our country up to what it is today, and they deserve better than losing their jobs with what feels like no warning. I’m committed to working in Congress to hold companies accountable, requiring them to treat employees with the respect they’ve earned. I’m proud to work with Representatives Sykes and Budzinski on this legislation to do just that.”
