In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on April 17, 2001, applicable to workers of VF Imagewear East (formerly VF Knitwear), Martinsville, Virginia. The notice was published in the Federal Register on May 3, 2001 (66 FR 22262).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. New information shows that a worker separation occurred involving an employee of the Martinsville, Virginia facility of VF Imagewear East, (formerly VF Knitwear), located in Park Ridge, Illinois. This employee was engaged in employment related to the production of fleece apparel, including jerseys and T-shirts at the Martinsville, Virginia location of the subject firm.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include an employee of VF Imagewear East, (formerly VF Knitwear), Martinsville, Virginia facility, located in Park Ridge, Illinois.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of VF Imagewear East (formerly VF Knitwear) adversely affected by increased imports.
