Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an investigation was initiated on December 11, 2003 in response to a petition filed by a company official on behalf of workers of Bes-Tex Fabrics, Inc., New York, New York.
The investigation revealed that the subject firm did not separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of workers as required by section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. Significant number or proportion of the workers means that at least three workers in a firm with a workforce of fewer than 50 workers would have to be affected. Separations by the subject firm did not meet this threshold level; consequently the investigation has been terminated.Start Signature
