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 July 9, 2003, applicable to workers of National Steel Corporation, Corporate Headquarters, Mishakawa, Indiana, Granite City Division, Granite City, Illinois, Great Lakes Operations, Ecorse, Michigan, Midwest Operations, Portage, Indiana, ProCoil Corporation, Canton, Michigan, Technical Research Center, Trenton, Michigan, National Steel Pellet Company, Keewatin, Minnesota and Delray Connecting Railroad, Detroit, Michigan. The notice was published in the Federal Register on July 22, 2003 (68 FR 43371).
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 flat rolled steel.
New information shows that United States Steel purchased the assets of National Steel Corporation on May 20, 2003 and some of the workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for United States Steel Corporation.
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 National Steel Corporation who were adversely affected by increased imports.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-51,611 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of National Steel Corporation (NSC), United States Steel Corporation, Corporate Headquarters, Mishakawa, Indiana (TA-W-51,611); National Steel Corporation, United States Steel Corporation, Granite City Division, Granite City, Indiana (TA-W-51,611A); National Steel Corporation, United States Steel Corporation, Great Lakes Operations, Ecorse, Michigan (TA-W-51,611B); National Steel Corporation, United States Steel Corporation, Midwest Operations, Portage, Indiana (TA-W-51,611C); ProCoil Corporation, United States Steel Corporation, Canton, Michigan (TA-W-51,611D); National Steel Corporation, Technical Research Center, Trenton, Michigan (TA-W-51,611E); National Steel Pellet Company, United States Steel Corporation, Keewatin, Minnesota (TA-W-51,611F); and, Delray Connecting Railroad, United States Steel Corporation, Detroit, Michigan (TA-W-51,611I) who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 8, 2002, through July 9, 2005, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
