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 February 19, 2002, applicable to workers of Republic Technologies International located in Lorain, Ohio. The notice was published in the Federal Register on February 28, 2002 (67 FR 9325). The certification was amended on May 6, 2003 to reflect the change in ownership and include workers of Republic Engineered Products, Lorain, Ohio (TA-W-40,521D). The notice was published in the Federal Register on May 19, 2003 (68 FR 27110-27111).
At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers produce hot rolled steel bars. The company reports that Republic Technologies International was purchased by Republic Engineered Products in August 2002 and that workers wages are reported under the Unemployment Insurance tax account for the new owner.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to reflect the change in ownership.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of the firm adversely impact by increased imports of steel bars.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-40,521 is hereby issued as follows:
“All workers of Republic Technologies International, currently known as Republic Engineered Products, headquartered in Akron, Ohio, including the following facilities producing hold rolled steel: Central Machine/Fabrication and Massillon Hot Rolled Plant, Massillon, Ohio; Chicago Plant, Chicago, Illinois; Lackawanna Plant, Blasdell, New York; Lorain Hot Rolled Bar Plant, Lorain, Ohio, and the following facilities producing cold finished steel: Beaver Falls Cold Finished plant, Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania; Gary Cold Finished Plants (E.
