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 March 8, 2002, applicable to workers of Rockwell Collins, Passenger Systems, located in Irvine and Pomona, California. The notice was published in the Federal Register on March 29, 2002 (67 FR 15227).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. Information provided by the State show that the workers wages are reported to the Unemployment Insurance tax account for New Rockwell.
The intent of the Department's certification is to provide coverage to all workers of Rockwell Collins, Passenger Systems, Irvine and Pomona, California, adversely affected by the shift in production of in-flight entertainment systems to Mexico. Therefore, the Department is amending the certification to include workers of the subject firm whose wages are paid by New Rockwell.
