In accordance with Section 250(a), Subchapter D, Chapter 2, Title II, of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 USC 2273), the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for NAFTA Transitional Adjustment Assistance on August 7, 1997, applicable to workers of Levi Strauss and Company, located in El Paso, Texas. The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 29, 1999 (64 FR 52543). In addition, the Department denied eligibility for an additional eight Levi Strauss & Company facilities in Texas, Tennessee, and California because there had not been threats of employment loss at those facilities. The notice was also published in the Federal Register on September 29, 1999 (64 FR 52542).

The company requested that the seven of the eight facilities (NAFTA-03325H through NAFTA-03325L, and NAFTA-03325N and O) which were previously denied be certified because of reduced work hours at each facility and provided information to indicate that workers had their work hours reduced by at least 20 percent. In addition, the company requested that contractors working full-time at all of the facilities also be included in the certification. The company also requested that an additional eleven facilities and work sites in seven states (Texas, Tennessee, California, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Nevada) be included as a result of additional layoff announcements.

The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Levi Strauss and Company, including full time contractors working at the identified facilities, who were adversely affected by increased imports of denim and Docker apparel from Mexico.

The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-03325 is hereby issued as follows:

All workers of the following Levi Strauss & Company facilities who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 8, 1999 through August 11, 2001 are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974:
