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 October 21, 2002, applicable to workers of General Cable Corp., Outside Voice and Data Telecommunications Div., Bonham, Texas. The notice was published in the Federal Register on November 5, 2002 (67 FR 67421).
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 copper telephone cable.
New information shows that for approximately six months, General Cable Corp., Outside Voice and Data Telecommunications Div. was operating under the name of Biccgeneral Cable Industries, Inc. and that workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Biccgeneral Cable Industries, Inc.
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 General Cable Corp., Outside Voice and Data Telecommunications Div. affected by increased imports from Mexico.
The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-06317 is hereby issued as follows:
“All workers of General Cable Corp., Biccgeneral Cable Industries, Inc., Outside Voice and Data Telecommunications Div., Bonham, Texas, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after June 24, 2001, through October 21, 2004, are eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.”Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC, this 9th day of April 2003.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
