By letter dated June 8, 2005, a company official requested administrative reconsideration regarding Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) applicable to workers of the subject firm. The negative determination was signed on May 17, 2005, and was published in the Federal Register on June 13, 2005 (70 FR 34155).
The workers of Selkirk, LLC, Logan, Ohio were certified eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) on May 17, 2005.
The initial ATAA investigation determined that the skills of the subject worker group are easily transferable to other positions in the local area.
In the request for reconsideration, the company official provided new information confirming that the skills of the workers at the subject firm are not easily transferable in the local commuting area.Start Printed Page 40744
Additional investigation has determined that the workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse.
After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that the requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, have been met for workers at the subject firm.
In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification:
“All workers of Selkirk, LLC, Logan, Ohio, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after May 28, 2005 through May 17, 2007, are eligible to apply for trade adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.”
“I further determine that all workers of Selkirk, LLC, Logan, Ohio, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after April 26, 2004 through May 17, 2007 are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.”Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC, this 23rd day of June 2005.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
