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 Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on April 17, 2008, applicable to workers of Citation Corporation, Grand Rapids Division, Lowell, Michigan. The notice was published in the Federal Register on May 2, 2008 (73 FR 24317).
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 precision machined aluminum castings for engine and transmission components.
