In accordance with section 250(A), Subchapter D, Chapter 2, Title II, of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 USC 2273), the Department of Labor issued a Certification for NAFTA Transitional Adjustment Assistance on June 24, 1999, applicable to workers of Levi Strauss and Company, Morrilton Sewing Facility, located in Morrilton, Arkansas. The notice was published in the Federal Register on July 20, 1999 (FR 38922).
At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of men's slacks and men's and women's jeans. New information received by the company shows that worker separations have occurred at the following facilities of Levis Strauss & Company: Little Rock Rescreen and Little Rock Customer Service, Little Rock, Arkansas, KB's Environmental Service, Menifee, Arkansas and Zimmerman Food Service, Morrilton, Arkansas. The Little Rock Rescreen and Little Rock Customer Service provided inspection, various customer services and distribution for Levi Strauss & Company. KB's Environmental Service and Zimmerman Food Service provided janitorial and cafeteria services for the subject firm's Morrilton Sewing Facility located in Morrilton, Arkansas which closed in early 1999.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of the subject firm, including full time contractors working at the above mentioned facilities, adversely affected by increased imports from Canada and Mexico.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-03161 is hereby issued as follows:
