At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in employment related to the production of stainless steel surgical needles.
New information shows that workers leased from Tyteffco Industries were employed on-site at the North Syracuse, New York location of B.G. Sulzle, Inc. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of B.G. Sulzle, Inc. to be considered leased workers.
Based on this finding, the Department is amending this certification to include workers leased from Tyteffco Industries working on-site at the North Syracuse, New York location of the subject firm.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers employed at B.G. Sulzle, Inc., North Syracuse, New York who were adversely affected by increased imports of stainless steel surgical needles.
