Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, an investigation was initiated on June 24, 2002 in response to a petition filed by the Union on behalf of workers at Joy Mining Machinery, Mount Vernon, Illinois.
All workers were separated from the subject firm one year prior to the date of the petition. Section 223 of the Act specifies that no certification may apply to any worker whose last separation occurred more than one year before the date of the petition. Start Printed Page 59556
Consequently, further investigation in this case would serve no purpose, and the investigation has been terminated.Start Signature
