This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on June 16, 2004, applicable to workers of Matsushita Electronic Components Corporation of America, a subsidiary of Matsushita Electric Corporation of America, including leased workers of Staffing Solutions, Knoxville, Tennessee. The notice was published in the Federal Register on July 7, 2004 (69 FR 40984).
At the request of a company official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of speakers, capacitors and aluminum foil.
New information shows that as the result of a corporate decision, Matsushita Electronic Components Corporation of America, a subsidiary of Matsushita Electric Corporation of America will become known as Panasonic Electronic Devices Corporation of America as of April 1, 2005. Workers separated from employment as the subject firm will have their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Panasonic Electronic Devices Corporation of America. Accordingly, the Department is amending this certification to properly reflect this matter.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Matsushita Electronic Components Corporation of America, a subsidiary of Matsushita Electric Corporation of America who were adversely affected by a shift in production to China.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-54,986 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Matsushita Electronic Components Corporation of America, a subsidiary of Matsushita Electric Corporation of America, now known as Panasonic Electronic Devices Corporation of America, including leased workers of Staffing Solutions, Knoxville, Tennessee, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after May 25, 2003, through June 16, 2006, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
