This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
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 April 27, 2010, applicable to workers of Cooper Tools, Hicksville, Ohio. The workers are engaged in activities related to the production. The notice was published in the Federal Register on May 28, 2010 (75 FR 30069).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. New information shows that in July, 2010, Apex Tool Group, LLC. purchased Cooper Tools and is currently known as Apex Tool Group, LLC. Some workers separated from employment at Cooper Tools had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax accounts for Cooper Tools, currently known as Apex Tool Group, LLC.
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 the subject firm who were adversely affected by increased imports of air tools, torque wrenches and screwdrivers.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-71,652 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Cooper Tools, currently known as Apex Tool Group, LLC, Hicksville, Ohio, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 13, 2008 through April 27, 2012, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on date of certification through two years from the date of certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of March 2011.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
