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 October 14, 2003, applicable to workers of Straits Steel & Wire, Ludington, Michigan. The notice was published in the Federal Register on November 6, 2003 (68 FR 62834).
At the request of a company official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of display shelving and baskets for refrigerators.
New information shows that Straits Steel & Wire and Rowe Engineering are subsidiaries of SSW Holding. Information also shows that workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Rowe Engineering.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter.Start Printed Page 4181
