By letter postmarked July 11, 2005, 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 May 16, 2005, and published in the Federal Register on June 13, 2005 (70 FR 34154).
The investigation revealed that the petitioning workers of this firm or subdivision do not produce an article within the meaning of section 222 of the Act.
The Department reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the petitioner has provided Start Printed Page 48605additional information. Therefore, the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements 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
Signed in Washington, DC, this 9th day of August, 2005.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
