U.S. Secretary of Labor (Court No. 05–0021). The Department’s denial of the initial petition for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) was issued on October 20, 2004. The Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on November 12, 2004 (69 FR 65462). The negative determination was based on the finding that the predominant cause of separations at the subject facility was the consolidation of administrative and support functions to the subject firm’s corporate headquarters in Canada. Administrative reconsideration was not requested. By letter dated January 8, 2005, the petitioner filed an appeal with the USCIT, alleging that worker separations were due to the subject firm’s shift of production to Canada. In order to carry out the intent of the statute and to safeguard the interests of the petitioners, the Department requested, and was granted, a voluntary remand to further investigate the matter. During the remand investigation, the Department raised additional questions and obtained detailed supplemental responses from the company. In particular, the new information provided by the company officials revealed that the subject firm is an integrated organization which coordinates all activities at the subject facility and that the subject worker group supported domestic subject firm production, including the subject firm’s production facility in Lynwood, Washington (TA–W–55,165; certified on July 12, 2004) during 2003 and January through September 2004. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21247 The Department also investigated whether Creo Americas, Inc., Creo Seattle Division, A Subsidiary of Creo, Inc., Lynwood, Washington was TAAcertifiable during the relevant period. The investigation revealed that the Lynwood, Washington facility experienced a shift of production to Canada during the relevant period and that the shift of production contributed importantly to the employment declines at the subject facility. Conclusion After careful review of the newlyobtained facts generated during the remand investigation, I determine that a shift of production contributed importantly to the total or partial separation of workers at the subject facility. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: All workers of Creo Americas, Inc., U.S. Headquarters, A Subsidiary of Creo, Inc., Billerica, Massachusetts, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after September 7, 2003, through two years from the issuance of this determination, are eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.

Butler Manufacturing Company, Subsidiary of Bluescope Steel, LTD,

Buildings Division, Trim and Components Production, Galesburg, IL; 
Buildings Division, Secondaries Production, Galesburg, IL; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application of April 1, 2005, members of the subject worker 
group 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 negative determination was signed on March 2, 2005 and the 
Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on April 
1, 2005 (70 FR 16847). The workers produced parts for pre-engineered 
metal buildings systems. Workers are separately identifiable by product 
line.
    The petition was denied because the subject firm did not shift 
production abroad and there were no increased imports by the subject 
company or its customers during the relevant period.
    The request for reconsideration alleges that the workers are not 
separately identifiable by product line, that the subject firm will 
shift of production to India and China in May/June 2005 and import pre-
engineered metal buildings from those facilities, that the shift to 
Mexico will continue, and that the subject firm has increased imports 
from Mexico, Australia, China and India.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the petitioner's request for 
reconsideration and shall further investigate the matter based on new 
information provided by the petitioners.

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.
