In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Notice of Certification Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on January 15, 2003, applicable to workers of Emerson Tool Company, Paris, Tennessee. The notice was published in the Federal Register on February 6, 2003 (68 FR 6212).
At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of power tools.
The company reports that worker separations occurred at the Headquarters, St. Louis, Missouri location of the subject firm. Workers at the St. Louis, Missouri location provide administrative function services for the subject firm's production plant located in Paris, Tennessee.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending the certification to include workers of Emerson Tool Company, Headquarters, St. Louis, Missouri.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Emerson Tool Company who were adversely affected by increased imports.
