In accordance with section 250(a), Subchapter D, Chapter 2, Title II, of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2273), the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for NAFTA Transitional Adjustment Assistance on September 4, 2001, applicable to workers of McGinley Mills, Inc., Easton, Pennsylvania. The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 21, 2001 (66 FR 48707).
At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The company reports that worker separations occurred at the Phillipsburg, New Jersey location of McGinley Mills, Inc. The Phillipsburg, New Jersey location produces woven greige goods needed for the production of ribbons and ribbon products at the Easton, Pennsylvania location of the subject firm.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending the certification to include workers of the Phillipsburg, New Jersey location of McGinley Mills, Inc.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Wesley Industries, Inc. affected by increased imports of ribbons and ribbon products from Mexico.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-04818 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of McGinley Mills, Inc., Easton, Pennsylvania (NAFTA-04818) and McGinley Mills, Inc., Phillipsburg, New Jersey (NAFTA-04818A) who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 26, 2000, through September 4, 2003, are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
