In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. 2273, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 6, 2009, applicable to workers of Weyerhaeuser NR Company, Aberdeen Forest Area Division, Cosmopolis, Washington. The notice was published in the Federal Register September 22, 2009 (74 FR 48302-48304).
At the request of the State Agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in activities related to the production of logs.
The company reports that leased workers from the above mentioned firms were employed at the Cosmopolis, Washington location of Weyerhaeuser NR Company. 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 workers leased from the above mentioned firms working on-site at the Cosmopolis, Washington location of Weyerhaeuser NR Company, Aberdeen Forest Area Division.
