Penn Mould Industries, Inc., Washington, PA; Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated April 18, 2005 United Steelworkers of America, 
District 10 requested administrative reconsideration regarding the 
Department's Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for 
Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to the workers of the subject 
firm.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
signed on March 16, 2005 was based on the finding that imports of 
molding equipment for glass containers did not contribute importantly 
to worker separations at the subject plant and no shift of production 
to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice will soon be published 
in the Federal Register.
    The petitioner provided additional information on subject firm's 
customers. The petitioner also brought to the Department's attention 
the fact that the subject firm has a sister company, Ross Mould, Inc., 
Washington, Pennsylvania, which manufactures the same products and 
shares the same customer base with the subject firm. Workers of Ross 
Mould, Inc., Washington, Pennsylvania were certified eligible for TAA 
on November 19, 2004 (TA-W-55,828).
    Upon the review of the information obtained during the 
investigations of both the sister companies, it was revealed that 
subject firm's major declining customer increased its import purchases 
of molding equipment for glass containers while decreasing its 
purchases from the subject firm during the relevant period. It was also 
revealed that sales and employment have declined at the subject firm 
during the relevant time period.
    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 initial investigation, I conclude that 
increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced at Penn Mould Industries, Inc., Washington, Pennsylvania, 
contributed importantly to the declines in sales or production and to 
the total or partial separation of workers at the subject firm. In 
accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following 
certification:

    All workers of Penn Mould Industries, Inc., Washington, 
Pennsylvania, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after February 10, 2004 through two years from the 
date of this certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment 
assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are 
eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under 
Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
