In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273), and section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance on June 23, 2010, applicable to workers of General Motors Corporation, Milford Proving Grounds, Milford, Michigan. The notice was published in the Federal Register on July 7, 2010 (75 FR 39046).
The workers supply support services related to the production of automobiles, such as quality, reliability, and durability testing. The subject worker group includes on-site leased workers from various temporary staffing agencies.
New information provided in another investigation shows that workers of the Non-IT Business Development Team and the Engineering Applications Support Team of the Global Product Development division of Hewlett Packard, formerly known as EDS, were employed on-site at General Motors Corporation, Milford Proving Grounds, Milford, Michigan during the relevant period. Based on this new information, the Department reviewed the certification of TA-W-72,851.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers at the subject firm who were adversely affected by increased U.S. aggregate imports of articles like or directly competitive with automobiles produced by General Motors Corporation, Milford, Michigan.
The Department has determined that the workers of Hewlett Packard formerly known as EDS, Global Product Development, Non-IT Business Development Team and Engineering Applications Support Team, were sufficiently under the control of General Motors, Milford Proving Grounds, Milford, Michigan, during the relevant period and are, therefore, part of the subject worker group.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include on-site leased workers from Hewlett Packard, formerly known as EDS, Global Product Development, Non-IT Business Development Team and Engineering Applications Support Team, Milford, Michigan.
