CDI Professional Services Workers at General Dynamics Land Systems, California Technical Center, Goleta, CA; Notice of Negative Determination on Reconsideration, 6456 [E5-456]

Download as PDF 6456 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 24 / Monday, February 7, 2005 / Notices separations at the subject firm were the result of a shift of production of acrylic monomers to China. During the reconsideration investigation, it was found that workers are not separately identifiable by product line and that acrylic monomer production declined during the relevant period. New information provided by the subject company revealed that company imports of acrylic monomer increased after the company shifted acrylic monomer production to China in 2004. The investigation also revealed that all criteria have been met in regard to alternative trade adjustment assistance. A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over and workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that a shift of production to China followed by increased imports of acrylic monomers contributed importantly to worker separations at the subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: All workers of BASF Corporation, Freeport, Texas, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 30, 2003, through two years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
