Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an investigation was initiated on August 11, 2003, in response to a petition filed by a company official on behalf of the group of workers of Fishing Vessel (F/V) Lumi, Seward, Alaska.
The investigation revealed that the subject firm did not separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of workers as required by section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. Significant number or proportion of the workers means that at least three workers in a firm with a workforce of fewer than 50 workers would have to be affected. Separations by the subject firm did not meet this threshold level. To continue with the investigation would serve no purpose and the investigation is terminated.Start Signature
