The TAA petition, filed on behalf of workers at DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina engaged in production of veneer faces was denied because the ‘‘contributed importantly’’ group eligibility requirement of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974 was not met.

A review of the new facts determined that the workers of the subject firm may qualify eligible for TAA on the basis of a secondary upstream supplier impact. Having conducted an investigation of subject firm workers on the basis of secondary impact, it was revealed that DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina supplied veneer faces that were used in the production of furniture, and a loss of business with domestic manufacturers (whose workers were certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance) contributed importantly to the workers separation or threat of separation.

    By application of January 11, 2005 a petitioner requested 
administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative

the subject firm to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and 
Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). The denial notice was 
signed on December 15, 2004 and published in the Federal Register on 
January 24, 2005 (70 FR 3390).
    The TAA petition, filed on behalf of workers at DHS Veneer, 
Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina engaged 
in production of veneer faces was denied because the ``contributed 
importantly'' group eligibility requirement of Section 222 of the Trade 
Act of 1974 was not met.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided 
additional list of the subject firm's customers and requested to 
investigate a secondary impact on the subject firm as an upstream 
supplier in the furniture industry. A review of the new facts 
determined that the workers of the subject firm may qualify eligible 
for TAA on the basis of a secondary upstream supplier impact.
    Having conducted an investigation of subject firm workers on the 
basis of secondary impact, it was revealed that DHS Veneer, Subsidiary 
of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina supplied veneer 
faces that were used in the production of furniture, and a loss of 
business with domestic manufacturers (whose workers were certified 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance) contributed importantly to 
the workers separation or threat of separation.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results 
of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply 
for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers.
    In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility 
to apply for ATAA, the group eligibility requirements of Section 246 of 
the Trade Act must be met. The Department has determined in this case 
that the requirements of Section 246 have been met.
    A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and 
possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions 
within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the facts obtained in the investigation, I 
determine that workers of DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, 
Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina qualify as adversely affected 
secondary workers under Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the

    All workers of DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., 
Thomasville, North Carolina who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after October 27, 2003 through two 
years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for

and are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment 
assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
