North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation Notice of Determination Regarding Review of Submission #2011-02
Document Number: 2012-1765
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-01-27
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of the Secretary
The Office of Trade and Labor Affairs (OTLA) gives notice that on January 13, 2012, Submission 2011-02 was accepted for review pursuant to Article 16.3 of the North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation (NAALC). The Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (SME), a Mexican union, filed the submission with OTLA on November 14, 2011. The SME also filed the submission on behalf of 93 other organizations. The submitters allege that the Government of Mexico (GOM) failed to fulfill its obligations under Articles 2 through 6 of the NAALC. The submission alleges that these violations of the NAALC stem from a number of actions or failures to take action on the part of the GOM starting with the issuance of a Presidential decree on October 10, 2009 dissolving the state-owned electrical power company, Central Light and Power (Luz y Fuerza del Centro), thereby in effect terminating the employment of over 44,000 SME members. According to the submission, the GOM's subsequent actions or lack thereof denied these workers their rights under Mexican law related to freedom of association, the right to organize, the right to bargain collectively, and the prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses. If substantiated, such statements in the submission could constitute a failure on the part of Mexico to comply with its obligations under the NAALC. The objective of the review of the submission will be to gather information so that OTLA can better understand the allegations therein and publicly report on the U.S. Government's views regarding whether the GOM's actions were consistent with its obligations under the NAALC.

Document Number: 2012-591
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-01-13
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program for Delaware and Minnesota. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding State EB status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on December 20, 2011, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Minnesota fell to 6.4%, and their third year look-back fell to 108%. These two factors trigger Minnesota ``off'' the EB program with the week ending December 24, 2011, and the end of the payable period in Minnesota in the EB program will be January 14, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on December 20, 2011, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Delaware fell to 7.9%, below the rate required to remain in a high unemployment period (HUP). Claimants will remain eligible for up to 20 weeks of benefits in Delaware through January 14, 2012, but starting January 15, 2012, the maximum potential entitlement in the EB program in Delaware will decrease from 20 weeks to 13 weeks.

Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding Notice of a Change in Status of the payable period in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) program for Iowa and Oklahoma. Public law 112-78 extended provisions in Public Law 111-92 which amended prior laws to create a Third and Fourth Tier of benefits within the EUC08 program for qualified unemployed workers claiming benefits in high unemployment states. The Department of Labor produces a trigger notice indicating which states qualify for EUC08 benefits within Tiers Three and Four and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EUC08 program can be found at: http:// ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claimsarch.asp. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on December 20, 2011, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Iowa fell to 5.9%, below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 3 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential duration for claimants in Iowa in the EUC08 program will decrease from 47 weeks to 34 weeks. The week ending January 14, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in Iowa can exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase- out provisions, claimants can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 3 after January 14, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on December 20, 2011, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Oklahoma rose to 6.0%, meeting the criteria to trigger ``on'' to Tier 3 in the EUC08 program. Claimants who have exhausted Tier 2 in the EUC08 program may be eligible for up to 13 additional weeks of benefits. The payable period for Oklahoma in Tier 3 of the EUC08 program begins January 8, 2012.
