Start Preamble

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 January 30, 2004, applicable to workers of Eastern Pulp and Paper Co., Inc., Lincoln Pulp and Paper Plant, Lincoln, Maine. The notice was published in the Federal Register on February 6, 2004 (69 FR 5868).

At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. New information shows that worker separations occurred at the Eastern Pulp and Paper Co., Inc., Corporate Office, located in Amherst, Massachusetts. The subject firm also separated workers at various locations in the states of Michigan, Connecticut, Georgia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio and Wisconsin, reporting to the Lincoln Pulp and Paper Plant. These employees provide administrative, sales and marketing support services for the production of paper, tissue paper and wood pulp produced at the Lincoln, Maine location of the subject firm.

Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include employees of the Amherst, Massachusetts location and employees of the Lincoln, Maine location of Eastern Pulp and Paper Co., Inc. operating at various locations in the following states: Michigan, Connecticut, Georgia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio and Wisconsin.

The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Eastern Pulp and Paper Co., Inc., Lincoln Pulp and Paper Plant who were adversely affected by increased imports. The amended notice applicable to TA-W-54,061 is hereby issued as follows:
