General Dynamics Itronix Corporation; A Subsidiary of General Dynamics Corporation, Including Remote Workers Reporting to Sunrise, FL; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

 

On June 22, 2012, the Department of Labor issued a Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to workers and former workers of General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, a subsidiary of General Dynamics Corporation, Sunrise, Florida (subject firm). The workers' firm is engaged in activities related to the supply of program management services for rugged laptop computers and rugged mobile devices. The worker group includes remote workers reporting to Sunrise, Florida.

Based on information provided during the reconsideration investigation, the Department determines that worker separations at the subject firm are related to increased imports of articles which are produced using services supplied by the subject firm.

Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or proportion of the workers in General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, Sunrise, Florida have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated.

Section 222(a)(2)(A)(i) has been met because the sales and/or production by General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, Sunrise, Florida have decreased absolutely.

Section 222(a)(2)(A)(ii) has been met because company imports of articles like or directly competitive with those which are/were produced by using the services supplied by workers of General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, Sunrise, Florida have increased during the relevant period.

Finally, Section 222(a)(2)(A)(iii) has been met because increased company imports contributed importantly to the worker group separations and sales/production declines at General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, Sunrise, Florida.

After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I determine that workers of General Dynamics Itronix Corporation, a subsidiary of General Dynamics Corporation, including remote workers reporting to, Sunrise, Florida, who are/were engaged in employment related to the supply of program management services for rugged laptop computers and rugged mobile devices, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a).
