Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 173 / Thursday, September 6, 2012 / Notices At the request of a state workforce official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in activities related to the production of custom injection molded plastic parts. New information shows that Fortis Plastics is now called Carlyle Plastics and Resins.

Accordingly, the Department is amending this certification to properly reflect this matter. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–81,655 is hereby issued as follows: All workers of Carlyle Plastics and Resins, formerly known as Fortis Plastics, a subsidiary of Plastics Acquisitions Inc., including on-site leased workers from Kelly Services and Shelley Investments d/b/a Salem Business Center, Carlyle, Illinois, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after May 23, 2011 through July 3, 2014, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on July 3, 2012 through July 3, 2014, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
