SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Some former Delta employees are hoping for financial help after the closure of Sioux City's Delta Call Center.

About 165 employees lost their jobs when the center closed August 31st.

100 of them are now looking for help through Trade Adjustment Act assistance.

The Trade Adjustment Act provides financial help for things like tuition, books, and fees to help former employees get better jobs.

"There are lots of positions available, but people need the short term training opportunities, whether that be a short term certificate or a one year diploma. There are businesses looking for people with those skills," said Shawn Fick, Assistant Director of Job Training Partners at Western Iowa Tech Community College.

Some employees let go from the call center transferred to out-of-state locations within the company.
