This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on June 21, 2002, applicable to all workers of MeadWestvaco, located in Rumford, Maine. The notice will soon be published in the Federal Register.
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The State reports that it was the company's intent to include leased workers producing coated groundwood paper and freesheet paper and market pulp at the Rumford mill. New information provided to the Department by the State and a company official show that MeadWestvaco leased employees to produce articles at the Rumford, Maine mill. Worker separations were experienced at Bancroft Contracting, Denali Fire Protection, WF Porter, Mechanical Services, Cinbro Contracting, ES Boulos, CP Technologies, and Arbon Equipment as a result of worker separations at MeadWestvaco.

Based on this new information, the Department is amending the certification to include leased workers producing coated paper and pulp at the Rumford mill. The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of MeadWestvaco adversely affected by imports.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-41,327 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of MeadWestvaco, Rumford, Maine, and leased workers of Bancroft Contracting, Denali Fire Protection, WF Porter, Mechanical Services, Cinbro Contracting, ES Boulos, CP Technologies, and Arbon Equipment engaged in employment related to the production of coated groundwood and freesheet paper and market pulp at MeadWestvaco, Rumford, Maine, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after March 22, 2001, through June 21, 2004, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 9th day of July, 2002.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
