Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an investigation was initiated on October 24, 2003 in response to a petition filed on behalf of workers of Star Machine Shop, Galax, Virginia.
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 Start Printed Page 67486workers 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; consequently the investigation has been terminated.Start Signature
