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 Revised Determination on Reconsideration on September 28, 2001, applicable to workers of Willamette industries, Inc., Foster Plywood Division, Sweet Home, Oregon. The notice was published in the Federal Register on October 19, 2001, (FR 66 53253).
At the request of the state agency, the Department reviewed the revised determination for workers of the subject firm. Information provided by the State and the company shows that Weyerhaeuser Company purchased Willamette Industries, Inc. in March 2002 and is known as Weyerhaeuser Company.
Information also shows that workers separated from employment at the subject firm, had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Weyerhaeuser Company.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the revised determination to properly reflect this matter.
The intent of the Department's revised determination is to include all workers of Willamette Industries, Inc., Foster Plywood Division, now known as Weyerhaeuser Company who were affected by increased imports of veneer core form Canada.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-04631 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers engaged in the production of veneer core at Willamette Industries, Inc., Foster Plywood Division, now known as Weyerhaeuser Company, Sweet Home, Oregon, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after March 1, 2000, through September 28, 2003, are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC this 4th day of April, 2002.
