Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker Adjustment Assistance

After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these petitions.

The following determinations terminating investigations were issued because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

TA-W-73,258: Pacific Die Cut Industries, Hayward, CA Start Printed Page 34178

TA-W-73,955: Cole Ford Mercury of Winchester, Inc., Winchester, KY

The following determinations terminating investigations were issued in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be signed by at least three individuals of the petitioning worker group. Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under Section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed invalid.

TA-W-73,279: JP Morgan Chase, Fort Worth, TX

TA-W-73,498: ADC Telecommunications, Shakopee, MN

TA-W-73,930: Dee Van Enterprise USA, Inc., Fremont, CA

The following determinations terminating investigations were issued because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be covered by more than one certification at a time.

TA-W-72,501: PCC Airfoils, LLC, Precision Castparts Corporation, Crooksville, OH

The following determinations terminating investigations were issued because the petitions are the subject of ongoing investigations under petitions filed earlier covering the same petitioners.

TA-W-74,059: Freescale Semiconductors, Woburn, MA

I hereby certify that the aforementioned determinations were issued during the period of June 1, 2010, through June 4, 2010. Copies of these determinations may be requested under the Freedom of Information Act. Requests may be submitted by fax, courier services, or mail to FOIA Disclosure Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210 or to foiarequest@dol.gov. These determinations also are available on the Department's Web site at http://www.doleta.gov/​tradeact under the searchable listing of determinations.
