Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply for NAFTA-
Transitional Adjustment Assistance

    In accordance with Section 250(a), Subchapter D, Chapter 2, Title 
II, of the Trade Act of 1974 as amended (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department 
of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for NAFTA 
Transitional Adjustment Assistance on March 27, 1997, applicable to all 
workers at Stride Rite Corporation located in Hamilton and Tipton, 
Missouri. The notice was published in the Federal Register on April 15, 
1997 (62 FR 18362).
    At the request of the petitioners, the Department reviewed the 
certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged 
in the production of children's shoes. New information received by the 
company shows that worker separations have occurred at the Lexington, 
Massachusetts location of Stride Rite Corporation. The Lexington, 
Massachusetts facility is the corporate headquarters office and 
provides production planning services for

children's shoes at Stride Rite Corporation.
    The intent of the Department's certification is to include all 
workers of Stride Rite Corporation who were adversely affected by 
increased imports of children's shoes from Mexico. Accordingly, the 
Department is amending the certification to cover the workers of Stride 
Rite Corporation, Lexington, Massachusetts.
    The amended notice applicable to NAFTA-01530 is hereby issued as 

    ``All workers of Stride Rite Corporation, Hamilton, Missouri 
(NAFTA-01530), Tipton, Missouri (NAFTA-01530A), and Lexington, 
Massachusetts (NAFTA-01530B) who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after February 24, 1996, are 
eligible to apply for NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act 
of 1974.''
