Pursuant to Section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an investigation was initiated on September 9, 2004 in response to a petition filed on behalf of workers of General Electric, Hickory Facility, Conover, North Carolina.
The Department has deemed the petition invalid because the three petitioners belong to different business groups within the corporate structure of General Electric. When filed by workers, a petition must contain a defined worker group to be deemed acceptable for consideration of adjustment assistance eligibility. Consequently, further investigation in this case would serve no purpose, and the investigation has been terminated.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 19th day of October, 2004.
