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 25, 2010, applicable to workers of International Business Machines (IBM), Global Technology Services Delivery Division, Greenville, South Carolina. The Department's Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2010 (75 FR 56143).
At the request of a State Workforce Agent, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers provide customer help desk support.
During the review, the company confirmed that workers leased from Artech were employed on-site at the Greenville, South Carolina location of IBM, Global Technology Services Delivery Division. 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 Artech working on-site at the Greenville, South Carolina location of IBM, Global Technology Services Delivery Division.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-74,164 is hereby issued as follows:
