By application dated January 13, 2007, a state representative requested administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor's Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was issued on February 16, 2007 and published in the Federal Register on February 27, 2007 (72 FR 8795).
The negative determination was based on the Department's findings that 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 additional 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 Start Printed Page 13527reconsideration of the Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 16th of March, 2007.
