The notice was published in the Federal Register on June 2, 2004 (69 FR 31136). At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of commutators for fractional horsepower motors in consumer applications. New information shows that Morganite, Inc, Commutator Division became known as Energy Conversion Systems Holdings, LLC, Commutator Division, after the subject firms’ assets and operations were sold to Energy Conversion Systems Holdings, LLC in June 2004. Workers separated from employment as the subject firm had their wages reported under a separated unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Energy Conversion Systems Holdings, LLC, Commutator Division. Accordingly, the Department is amending this certification to properly reflect this matter. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of Morganite, Inc., Commutator Division, now known as Energy Conversion Systems Holdings LLC, Commutator Division, who were adversely affected by increased imports. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–54,408 is hereby issued as follows: All workers of Morganite, Inc., Commutator Division, now known as Energy Conversion Systems Holdings LLC, Commutator Division, Dunn, North Carolina, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after February 16, 2003, through April 23, 2006, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974. 21251 Local 2949, requested administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers of the subject firm. The determination was signed on February 4, 2005 and the Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on March 9, 2005 (70 FR 11703). The workers of the subject company produce particleboard. The negative determination was based on the findings that subject company sales and production increased during the investigatory period, that the subject company did not have any imports of like or directly competitive products, and that the subject company did not shift particleboard production abroad. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleges that particleboard production decreased during the relevant period. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation based on new information provided by the petitioner. Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. Signed at Washington, DC, this 6th day of April 2005. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

Shane-Hunter, Inc., San Francisco, CA; Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    On March 15, 2005, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application on Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The Notice of 
determination will soon be published in the Federal Register.
    The Department initially denied Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) 
to workers of Shane-Hunter, Inc., San Francisco, California because the 
subject

company's sales and production increased during the relevant period and 
the subject company did not shift production abroad. Workers were 
engaged in employment related to the production of women's and 
children's garments and were not separately identifiable by product 
line.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that the 
subject company shifted garment production abroad and is increasing 
reliance upon imports.
    In order to make an affirmative determination and issue a 
certification of eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance, 
the group eligibility requirements in either paragraph (a)(2)(A) or 
(a)(2)(B) of Section 222 of the Trade Act must be met. It is determined 
in this case that the requirements of (a)(2)(A) of Section 222 have 
been met.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department requested 
additional information and clarification from the subject company. The 
investigation revealed that during the relevant period, the subject 
company's domestic production levels and employment levels declined and 
that the subject company increased its reliance on imports of articles 
like or directly competitive with those produced at the subject 
company.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department 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 garment industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the facts obtained in the reconsideration 
investigation, I determine that increases of imports of articles like 
or directly competitive with those produced at the subject firm 
contributed importantly to the decline in sales or production and to 
the total or partial separation of workers of that firm. In accordance 
with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification:

    All workers of Shane-Hunter, Inc., San Francisco, California, 
who became totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after December 15, 2003 through two years from the date of 
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.
