Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, an investigation was initiated on August 11, 2003, in response to a worker petition filed by the South Carolina Employment Services, on behalf of a worker at Hexcel Corporation, Kent, Washington. The worker was separated from the subject firm more than one year prior to the date of the petition. Section 223 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.
The petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn. Consequently, further investigation in this case would serve no purpose, and the investigation may be terminated.Start Signature
