REGAL BELOIT CORPORATION
SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI DIVISION
INCLUDING ON-SITE LEASED WORKERS 
FROM PENMAC PERSONNEL SERVICES AND GCA SERVICES GROUP
SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI

Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility
 To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance 

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor 
issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance on December 18, 2012, applicable to 
workers of Regal Beloit Corporation, Springfield, Missouri 
Division, including on-site leased workers from Penmac 
Personnel Services, Springfield, Missouri.  The Department’s 
notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on 
January 4, 2013 (Volume 78, FR page 781).  
      At the request of a state workforce office, the Department 
reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm.  The 
workers were engaged in the production of contributing parts- 
rotors, stators, endshields, shells, and shafts for 48Frame NEMA 
Electrics motors for the HVAC market. 
      The company reports that workers leased from GCA Services 
Group were employed on-site at the Springfield, Missouri 
location of Regal Beloit Corporation, Springfield, Missouri 
Division.  The Department has determined that these workers were 
sufficiently under the control of the subject firm to be 
considered leased workers. 
     Based on these findings, the Department is amending this 
certification to include workers leased from GCA Services Group 
working on-site at the Springfield, Missori location of Regal 
Beloit Corporation, Springfield, Missouri Division. 
      The amended notice applicable to TA-W-82,199 is hereby 
issued as follows:
"All workers of GCA Services Group, reporting to Regal 
Beloit Corporation, Springfield, Missouri Division, 
including on-site leased workers from Penmac 
Personnel Services, Springfield, Missouri, who became 
totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after November 30, 2011, through December 18, 2014, 
and all workers in the group threatened with total or 
partial separation from employment on the date of 
certification through two years from the date of 
certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment 
assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade 
Act of 1974, as amended.”
Signed in Washington, D.C. this 14th day of August, 2013.

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI

Certification Regarding Eligibility
To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor herein 
presents the results of an investigation regarding certification of 
eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance.
      The group eligibility requirements for workers of a firm under 
Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a), are satisfied if 
the following criteria are met:
	(1)	 a significant number or proportion of the workers 
in such workers' firm have become totally or partially 
separated, or are threatened to become totally or 
partially separated;
	(2)(B)(i)(I)	there has been a shift by the workers’ 
firm to a foreign country in the production of articles 
or supply of services like or directly competitive with 
those produced/supplied by the workers’ firm; OR
	         (II)	there has been an acquisition from a 
	         foreign country by the workers’ firm of 
              articles/services that are like or directly
              competitive with those produced/supplied by 
              the workers’ firm; AND
(ii)	the shift/acquisition must have 
contributed importantly to the workers’ 
separation or threat of separation.  
  
      The investigation was initiated in response to a petition 
filed on December 3, 2012 by a state workforce office on behalf of 
workers of Regal Beloit Corporation, Springfield, Missouri 
Division, Springfield, Missouri (Regal Beloit Corporation).  The 
workers’ firm is engaged in activities related to the production of 
contributing parts- rotors, stators, endshields, shells, and 
shafts.  The subject worker group includes on-site leased workers 
from Penmac Personnel Services. 
      During the course of the investigation, information was 
collected from the workers’ firm. 
      Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number 
or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm have become 
totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally 
or partially separated.   
	Section 222(a)(2)(B) has been met because the workers’ firm 
has acquired from a foreign country articles like or directly 
competitive with articles produced by the workers which contributed 
importantly to worker group separations at Regal Beloit 
Corporation.
Conclusion
	After careful review of the facts obtained in the 
investigation, I determine that workers of Regal Beloit 
Corporation, Springfield, Missouri Division, including on-site 
leased workers from Penmac Personnel Services, Springfield, 
Missouri, who are engaged in activities related to the production 
of contributing parts- rotors, stators, endshields, shells, and 
shafts meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 
222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a). In accordance with Section 
223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2273, I make the following 
certification:
“All workers of Regal Beloit Corporation, Springfield, 
Missouri Division, including on-site leased workers from 
Penmac Personnel Services, Springfield, Missouri, who became 
totally or partially separated from employment on or after 
November 30, 2011 through two years from the date of 
certification, and all workers in the group threatened with 
total or partial separation from employment on the date of 
certification through two years from the date of 
certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance 
under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended.”
Signed in Washington, D.C., this 18th day of December, 2012.
