Porter House Limited aka Regina Porter, New York, NY; Notice of Revised Determination on Reopening On March 13, 1996, the Department issued a Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to all workers of Porter House Limited, aka Regina Porter, located in New York, New York. The notice was published in the Federal Register on April 3, 1996 (61 FR 14820). Based on new information received from the union representative and company officials, the Department, on its own motion, reviewed the findings of the investigation. The initial denial of TAA for the workers of Porter House Limited for Trade Adjustment Assistance was based on the fact that the workers were engaged in the merchandising of imported women’s apparel and did not produce an article. New findings on reopening show that the workers produced samples of ladies’ sportswear. The workers sewed, cut and

finished the samples. Other findings show that sales, production and employment decreased in the relevant period. U.S. aggregate imports of women’s and girls’ skirts increased absolutely in 1995 compared with 1994. Imports/ shipments for women’s skirts; blouses and shirts; and coats and jackets was over 110% in 1994 and 1995. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reopening, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with ladies’ sportswear contributed importantly to the declines in sales or production and to the total or partial separation of workers of Porter House Limited, aka Regina Porter, New York, New York. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification:
All workers of Porter House Limited, aka Regina Porter, New York, New York who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after January 29, 1995 are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.

Signed at Washington, D.C. this 12th day of September 1996. Russell T. Kile, Acting Program Manager, Policy and Reemployment Services, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc. 96–24829 Filed 9–26–96; 8:45 am]

Employment Standards Administration Wage and Hour Division Minimum Wages for Federal and Federally Assisted Construction; General Wage Determination Decisions General wage determination decisions of the Secretary of Labor are issued in accordance with applicable law and are based on the information obtained by the Department of Labor from its study of local wage conditions and data made available from other sources. They specify the basic hourly wage rates and fringe benefits which are determined to be prevailing for the described classes of laborers and mechanics employed on construction projects of a similar character and in the localities specified therein. The determinations in these decisions of prevailing rates and fringe benefits

Federal Register / Vol. 61, No. 189 / Friday, September 27, 1996 / Notices
have been made in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1, by authority of the Secretary of Labor pursuant to the provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act of March 3, 1931, as amended (46 Stat. 1494, as amended, 40 U.S.C. 276a) and of other Federal statutes referred to in 29 CFR Part 1, Appendix, as well as such additional statutes as may from time to time be enacted containing provisions for the payment of wages determined to be prevailing by the Secretary of Labor in accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act. The prevailing rates and fringe benefits determined in these decisions shall, in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing statutes, constitute the minimum wages payable on Federal and federally assisted construction projects to laborers and mechanics of the specified classes engaged on contract work of the character and in the localities described therein. Good cause is hereby found for not utilizing notice and public comment procedure thereon prior to the issuance of these determinations as prescribed in 5 U.S.C. 553 and not providing for delay in the effective date as prescribed in that section, because the necessity to issue current construction industry wage determinations frequently and in large volume causes procedures to be impractical and contrary to the public interest. General wage determination decisions, and modifications and supersedeas decisions thereto, contain no expiration dates and are effective from their date of notice in the Federal Register, or on the date written notice is received by the agency, whichever is earlier. These decisions are to be used in accordance with the provisions of 29 CFR Parts 1 and 5. Accordingly, the applicable decision, together with any modifications issued, must be made a part of every contract for performance of the described work within the geographic area indicated as required by an applicable Federal prevailing wage law and 29 CFR Part 5. The wage rates and fringe benefits, notice of which is published herein, and which are contained in the Government Printing Office (GPO) document entitled ‘‘General Wage Determinations Issued Under the Davis-Bacon And Related Acts,’’ shall be the minimum paid by contractors and subcontractors to laborers and mechanics. Any person, organization, or governmental agency having an interest in the rates determined as prevailing is encouraged to submit wage rate and fringe benefit information for consideration by the Department. Further information and selfexplanatory forms for the purpose of submitting this data may be obtained by writing to the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment Standards Administration, Wage and Hour Division, Division of Wage Determinations, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room S–3014, Washington, D.C. 20210.
