Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an investigation was initiated on December 12, 2002 in response to a worker petition filed by a company official on behalf of workers at Mike Dent Enterprises, Burns, Oregon.
All workers were separated from the subject firm more than one year before the date of the petition. Section 223(b) of the Act specifies that no certification may apply to any worker whose last separation occurred more than one year before the date of the petition. Consequently, further investigation in this case would serve no purpose, and the investigation has been terminated.Start Signature
