In accordance with Section 250(a), Subchapter D, Chapter 2, Title II, of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2273), the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for NAFTA Transitional Adjustment Assistance on August 21, 2002, applicable to workers of Glen Oaks Industries, Marietta Sportswear Manufacturing Company, Inc., Dallas, Texas. The certification was amended on September 25, 2002, to include workers formerly employed at Marietta Sportswear Manufacturing Co., Inc., Marietta, Oklahoma. 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. New information provided by the company official shows that wages for the six workers engaged in the production of men's slacks at the Dallas, Texas, location were reported to the Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax account for Glen Oaks Industries in Oklahoma. The company official also reports that Marietta Sportswear Manufacturing Co., Inc., is no longer an entity of Glen Oaks Industries, and thus, not applicable to this worker group.
Also, the Department has learned from the State that all six workers have been separated from employment and there is no need to have the certification in effect for two years from the date of issuance.
Based on this new information, the Department is again amending the certification to limit coverage to workers producing men's slacks at Marietta Sportswear Manufacturing Co., Inc., Dallas, Texas, whose wages were reported to the State of Oklahoma under the UI tax account for Glen Oaks Industries. Furthermore, the certification will expire October 4, 2002.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-6282 is hereby issued as follows:
Workers producing men's slacks at Glen Oaks Industries, Dallas, Texas, whose wages were reported to Glen Oaks Industries in Marietta, Oklahoma, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after June 13, 2001 through October 4, 2002, are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC, this 4th day of October 2002.
