In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issues a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on January 15, 2002, applicable to workers of Willamette Industries, Inc., Korpine Particleboard Division, Bend, Oregon. The notice was published in the Federal Register on January 31, 2002 (67 FR 4750). The certification was amended on February 4, 2002 to include workers of the Particleboard Sales Office of the subject firm located in Albany, Oregon. The notice was published in the Federal Register on February 13, 2002 (67 FR 6752).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification 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 now known as Weyerhaeuser Company.
