By letter of November 24, 2003, a petitioner requested administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor's Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers of the subject firm. The denial notice was signed on October 24, 2003, and published in the Federal Register on November 28, 2003 (68 FR 66878). Start Printed Page 26621
The Department reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation to establish whether petitioning workers produced an article within the meaning of section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974.
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
