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.

Competitive conditions within the garment industry are adverse. rmajette on DSK29S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 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: VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:51 Oct 19, 2009 Jkt 220001 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.

The workers of the firm’s Bed Products Division produced sheeting materials. New information submitted by the company demonstrates that workers in the WestPoint Stevens, Sheeting Division Office, Opelika, Alabama, provided administrative support for the firm’s production of sheeting at the Lanier Plant in Valley, Alabama which has ceased production. When filing the petition, the company official inadvertently failed to include workers in the Sheeting Division Office, Opelika, Alabama, in support of the Lanier Plant production. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of the firm who were adversely affected by increased imports.
