By letter of July 23, 2004, the company official requested administrative reconsideration of the Department's Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers of the subject firm. The Notice was signed on June 2, 2004 and published in the Federal Register on July 7, 2004 (69 FR 40983).
The Department reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the petitioner has provided additional information. Therefore, the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974.
Conclusion: 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
Signed at Washington, DC, this 9th day of August, 2004.
