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 13, 2004, applicable to workers of International Textile Group, Burlington Apparel Fabric, including leased workers of Staffing Alliance, Raeford, North Carolina.

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 yarn and wool.
