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 of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on October 25, 2006, applicable to workers of Kentucky Derby Hosiery Company, Inc., Plant 6, also known as Lynne Plant, Mount Airy, North Carolina and Kentucky Derby Hosiery Company, Inc., Plant 7, also known as Forest Drive Plant, including on-site leased workers from Ablest Staffing and Randstand Temporary Services, Mount Airy, North Carolina. The notice was published in the Federal Register on November 16, 2006 (71 FR 66799).

At the request of a company official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers produce socks.

New information shows that Gildan purchased the Kentucky Derby Hosiery Company, Inc. on December 1, 2006. The subject firm is currently known as Kentucky Derby Hosiery/Gildan, Plant 6, also known as Lynne Plant, and Plant 7, also known as Forest Drive Plant, Mount Airy, North Carolina.

Workers separated from employment at Plant 6 and Plant 7 of the subject firm have their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Kentucky Derby Hosiery/Gildan.

Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter.
