Elaine Chao, U.S. Secretary of Labor, No. 04– 00262, on February 1, 2005. The workers of Hollister, Inc., Kirksville Manufacturing, Kirksville, Missouri (‘‘Hollister’’) were certified as eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) on February 11, 2004. The Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on March 12, 2004 (69 FR 11890). By letter dated March 19, 2004, the United Automotive Workers, Local 710, requested that Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) be included in the TAA petition. The request was dismissed because the application for ATAA was not filed with the TAA petition, as required by the Secretary’s interpretation of Section 246 of the Trade Act, Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 2–03 (August 6, 2003). 69 FR 60904, October 13, 2004. On June 28, 2004, the Plaintiff appealed to the USCIT, asserting that the workers were not provided the assistance and opportunity to request ATAA because the requirements for applying for ATAA were ambiguous. On October 29, 2004, the Department issued Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 2–03, Change 2, VerDate jul<14>2003 15:12 Mar 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 ‘‘Requests for Certification under the Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) Program for Certain Worker Groups Covered by Certified TAA Petitions’’ (TEGL 2–03, Change 2). 70 FR 8829–02, February 23, 2005. The Department’s new TEGL concerning the filing of requests for group ATAA certification provides that worker groups whose petitions were still in process at the time of implementation of the ATAA program on August 6, 2003 and certified worker groups who filed petitions which did not include an option to apply for ATAA may request group ATAA certification after the filing of a TAA petition. The Department construes the Plaintiff’s letters as timely requests for group ATAA certification under TEGL 2–03, Change 2. Accordingly, the Department has conducted an investigation to determine the workers’ eligibility to apply for ATAA certification. The group eligibility certification criteria for the ATAA program under Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, established that the Department must determine whether a significant number of workers in the workers’ firm are 50 years of age or older, whether the workers in the workers’ firm possess skills that are not easily transferable, and whether the competitive conditions within the workers’ industry are adverse. The remand investigation revealed that at least five percent of the workforce at the subject firm is at least fifty years of age, the workers possess skills that are not easily transferable, and competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the facts, I conclude that the requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, have been met for workers at the subject firm.

Johnson Controls is an on site leased worker company for Springs Industries Wamsutta Plant, Anderson, South Carolina. The petitioning group of workers is covered by an active certification, (TA– W–56,295A) which expires on February 16, 2007. Consequently, further investigation in this case would serve no purpose; therefore the investigation under this petition has been terminated. E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1
