By letter of March 8, 2000, Local #3 of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union requested administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor's Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and North American Free Trade Agreement-Transitional Adjustment Assistance for workers of the subject firm. The notices were signed on February 10, 2000, and will Start Printed Page 17312soon be published in the Federal Register.
The Department has reviewed the Union's request and has determined that further investigation regarding the Union's assertions regarding the effects of a transfer of production equipment to Mexico is warranted.
After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC this 21st day of March 2000.
Grant D. Beale,
Program Manager, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
