Energizer Power Systems, Eveready Battery Company, Gainesville, 
FL; Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply For Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 
2273) the U.S. Department of Labor issued a Certification of 
Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 28, 
1998 applicable to all workers of Energizer Power Systems located in 
Gainesville, Florida. The notice was published in the Federal Register 
on September 28, 1998 (63 FR 51605).
    At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the 
certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged 
in the production of rechargeable batteries. Company information shows 
that Eveready Battery Company is the parent firm of Energizer Power 
Systems located in Gainesville, Florida, New information provided by 
the State shows that some workers separated from employment at 
Energizer Power Systems had their wages reported under a separate 
unemployment insurance (UI) tax account at Eveready Battery Company, 
also located in Gainesville, Florida. Based on these findings, the 
Department is amending the certification to include workers from 
Eveready Battery Company.
    The intent of the Department's certification is to include all 
workers of Energizer Power Systems who were adversely affected by 
increased imports of rechargeable batteries.
    The amended notice applicable to TA-W-34,695 is hereby issued as 

    ``All workers of Energizer Power Systems and Eveready Battery 
Company, Gainesville, Florida who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after June 12, 1997 through August 
28, 2000 are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under 
Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.''

    Signed at Washington D.C. this 29th day of September, 1998.
Grant D. Beale,
Acting Director, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
