Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 58 / Monday, March 28, 2005 / Notices the Knoxville, Tennessee operations, revealed that the subject worker group was engaged in activities which supported domestic subject company production, including the San Antonio, Texas facility. The Department also investigated whether Levi Strauss, San Antonio, Texas was TAA-certifiable during the relevant period. The investigation revealed that the San Antonio, Texas facility closed in January 2004 and that increased company imports during the relevant period contributed importantly to the plant’s closure and the worker group’s separations. The Department has determined that all criteria regarding ATAA for the subject worker group have been met. A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over, the workers possess skills that are not easily transferable and competitive conditions within the garment industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the facts generated during the remand investigation, I determine that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced at the subject firm contributed importantly to the total or partial separation of workers at the subject facility. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: All workers of Levi Strauss and Company, Knoxville, Tennessee, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 15, 2003, through two years from the issuance of this revised determination, are eligible to apply for Trade 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.

The notice was published in the Federal Register on March 9, 2005 (70 FR 11705). At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of finished fabric. New information shows that Joan Fabrics Corporation is the parent firm of Mastercraft Fabrics LLC, Eagle Mountain Finishing. Workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Joan Fabrics Corporation. Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of Mastercraft Fabrics LLC, Eagle Mountain Finishing, Cramerton, North Carolina who were adversely affected by a shift in production of finished fabric to Mexico.
