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 of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on June 11, 2007, applicable to workers of Lane Furniture Industries, Inc., Upholstery Division, Pontotoc, Mississippi. The notice was published in the Federal Register on June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35516).
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 reclining chairs, as well as upholstered motion and stationary sofas.
New information shows that Furniture Brands International, Incorporated is the parent firm of Lane Furniture Industries, Inc. Workers wages at the subject firm are being reported under the Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax account for Furniture Brands International, Incorporated.
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 Lane Furniture Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of Furniture Brands International, Inc., Upholstery Division, Pontotoc, Mississippi who were adversely affected by increased imports of upholstered motion and stationary sofas and recliners.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-61,423C is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Lane Furniture Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of Furniture Brands, Inc., Upholstery Division, Pontotoc, Mississippi (TA-W-61,423C), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 30, 2006 through June 11, 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
