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 and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on September 23, 2004, applicable to workers of VF Jeanswear Limited Partnership, subsidiary of VF Corporation, Cutting and Parts Division, Fabens, Texas, VF Jeanswear Limited Partnership, subsidiary of VF Corporation, Administrative Division, El Paso, Texas and VF Jeanswear Limited Partnership, subsidiary of VF Corporation, Laundry and Finishing Division, El Paso, Texas. The notice will be published soon in the Federal Register.

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 jeans for men; women and children provide administrative support services, and laundry and finishing of the jeans and are separately identifiable by location.

New findings show that there was a previous certification, TA-W-40,737 and TA-W-40,737A, issued on February 11, 2002, for workers of VF Jeanswear Limited Partnership, Fabens Facility, Fabens, Texas, Rojas Facility, El Paso, Texas and Riverside Facility, El Paso, Texas who were engaged in employment related to the production of jeans, administrative support services and laundry and finishing of the jeans. That certification expired February 11, 2004. To avoid an overlap in worker group coverage, the certification is being amended to change the impact date from September 10, 2003 to February 12, 2004, for workers of the subject firm.Start Printed Page 61409
