           Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility
          To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and
    Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for
             Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance


     In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19

USC 2273), and Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 USC

2813), as amended, the Department of Labor issued a Certification

Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance

and a Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for

Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on September 28, 2005,

applicable to workers of Sara Lee Branded Apparel, Division

Office, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.   The notice was published

in the Federal Register on October 31, 2005 (70 FR 62347).
     At the request of a company official and the State agency,

the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the

subject firm.   New information shows that worker separations

occurred involving four employees of the Division Office,

Winston-Salem, North Carolina facility of the Sara Lee Branded

Apparel located in Bristol, Connecticut, Norwalk, Connecticut,

Madison, Connecticut and New Canaan, Connecticut.   Ms. Sharon

Allen, Ms. Susan McIntyre, Mr. Michael Hoban and Ms. Vivian

Scanlon provided a variety of support function services for the

activities related to the production of underwear (shorts and T-

shirts) produced by the subject company.

     Based on these findings, the Department is amending this

certification to include employees of the Division Office,

Winston-Salem, North Carolina facility of the Sara Lee Branded

Apparel located in Bristol, Connecticut, Norwalk, Connecticut

Madison, Connecticut and New Canaan, Connecticut.

     The intent of the Department’s certification is to include

all workers of Sara Lee Branded Apparel, Division Office,

Winston-Salem, North Carolina who was adversely affected by

increased imports.
     The amended notice applicable to TA-W-57,802 is hereby

issued as follows:

     "All workers of Sara Lee Branded Apparel, Division

     Office, Division of the Sara Lee Corporation, Winston-

     Salem, North Carolina (TA-W-57,802), and including

     employees of Sara Lee Branded Apparel, Division,

     Office, Winston Salem, North Carolina, located in

     Bristol, Connecticut (TA-W-57,802A), Norwalk,

     Connecticut (TA-W-57,802B), Madison, Connecticut (TA-W-

     57,802C) and New Canaan, Connecticut (TA-W-57,802D),

     who became totally or partially separated from

     employment on or after July 29, 2004, through September

     28, 2007, are eligible to apply for adjustment

     assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.”

          I further determine that all workers of Sara Lee

     Branded Apparel, Division of the Sara Lee Corporation,

     Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are denied eligibility

     to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance

     under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
