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 September 14, applicable to workers of GDF SUEZ Mt. Tom Power Plant, a subsidiary of GDF SUEZ Energy North America, including on-site leased workers from Guidant Group, Holyoke, Massachusetts. The Department's notice of determination was published in the Start Printed Page 70207
Federal Register on September 11, 2014 (79 FR 179).
In response to a petition filed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 455 on behalf of workers at GDF SUEZ Energy North America, Holyoke, Massachusetts, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm.

The state workforce office reports that on-site leased workers from ATEECA also worked on-site at the subject firm.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include on-site leased workers from ATEECA, Holyoke, Massachusetts.
