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), and Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, the Department of Labor issued a Certification Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and a Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on August 16, 2005, applicable to workers of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Massachusetts. The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 8, 2005 (70 FR 53390).
At the request of a company official and the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. New information shows that worker separations have occurred involving employees of the New Bedford, Massachusetts facility of EPEC, LLC located in Bethel, Connecticut. The Bethel Connecticut workers provide support function services for the production of printed circuit boards at the New Bedford, Massachusetts location of the subject firm.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include employees of the New Bedford, Massachusetts facility of EPEC, LLC located in Bethel, Connecticut.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Start Printed Page 26566Massachusetts, who were adversely affected by imports.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-57,582 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Massachusetts (TA-W-57,582), including employees of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Massachusetts located in Bethel, Connecticut (TA-W-57,582B), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 15, 2004, through August 16, 2007, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974;
and I further determine that all workers of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Massachusetts (TA-W-57,582), including employees of EPEC, LLC, New Bedford, Massachusetts located in Bethel, Connecticut (TA-W-57,582B), are denied eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
