The notice was published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2008 (73 FR 75137). The certification was amended on December 24, 2008 to include employees in support of the subject firm working in Washougal, Washington, West Linn, Oregon, Temecula, California, Urbandale, Iowa and Weston, Wisconsin. The notice was published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2009 (74 FR 465-466).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of brake controls, breakaway kits and lights for the automotive and trailer industries.
New information received from a company official shows that workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Tekonsha Towing.
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 the subject firm who were adversely affected by increased imports of brake controls, breakaway knits and lights.
