In accordance with section 250(A), subchapter D, chapter 2, title II, of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273), the Department of Labor issued a Certification for NAFTA Transitional Adjustment Assistance on April 8, 2002, applicable to workers of Levolor Kirsch Window Fashions, Wood and Faux Wood Custom Window Coverings Department, Westminster, California. The notice published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2002 (67 FR 20166).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of wood and faux wood coverings.
New information shows that some workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Levolor Home Fashions.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Levolor Kirsch Window Fashions, Wood and Faux Wood Customer Window Coverings Department, Westminster, California who were adversely affected by a shift of production to Mexico.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA—05849 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Levolor Kirsch Window Fashions, Levolor Home Fashions, Wood and Faux Wood Custom Window Coverings Department, Westminster, California, engaged in the production of wood and Faux wood window coverings, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after February 4, 2001, through April 8, 2004, are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
