In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (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, 2007, applicable to workers of Hanesbrands, Inc., Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina. The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 27, 2007 (72 FR 54939).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in a variety of support activities related to the firm's production of laminated fabric and fabric components.
New information shows that workers leased from Diversco Integrated Services were employed on-site at the Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina, location of Hanesbrands, Inc.
The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm to be considered leased workers.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include leased workers from Diversco Integrated Services working on-site at the Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina, location of the subject firm.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers employed at Hanesbrands, Inc., Forest City Division, who were adversely affected by a shift in production of laminated fabric and fabric components Start Printed Page 77066to El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Honduras.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-61,962L is hereby issued as follows:
“All workers of Hanesbrands, Inc., Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina, including on-site leased workers from Diversco Integrated Services, Forest City, North Carolina, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 7, 2006, through September 13, 2009, are eligible to apply for trade 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
