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 a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and a Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on June 8, 2007, applicable to workers of American & Efird, Inc., d/b/a Robison Anton Textile Company, Bloomsburg Division, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. The notice was published in the Federal Register on June 22, 2007 (72 FR 34482).
At the request of a company official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of embroidery thread and yarn.
In a request for an amendment, the company provided sufficient information confirming that the skills of the workers at the subject firm are not easily transferable in the local commuting area.
Information also obtained from the company states that a significant number of workers of the subject firm are age 50 or over, workers have skills that are not easily transferable, and conditions in the industry are adverse. Review of this information shows that all eligibility criteria under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended have been met. Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to reflect its finding.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-61,415 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of American & Efird, Inc., d/b/a Robison Anton Textile Company, Bloomsburg Division, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 23, 2006 through June 8, 2009, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 and are also eligible to apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC this 25th day of June 2007.
