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 15, 2003, applicable to workers of TRW Automotive, Jackson, Michigan. The notice was published soon in the Federal Register on November 6, 2003 (68 FR 62834).
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 brakes.
New information from the State shows that a company official of the subject firm requested Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) on behalf of the workers of the subject firm but that request was not addressed in the decision document.
Information obtained from the company states that a significant number of workers of the subject firm are age 50 or over, workers have skills that are not easily transferable, and conditions in the industry are adverse. Review of this information shows that all eligibility criteria under section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended have been met.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to reflect its finding.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-52,752 is hereby issued as follows:
“All workers of TRW Automotive, Jackson, Michigan, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 25, 2002 through October 15, 2005, 2006, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 and are also eligible to apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.”Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 17th day of March, 2004.
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
