Kellogg's Snack Division, Macon, GA; Notice of Termination of Investigation, 52131 [E5-4782]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 169 / Thursday, September 1, 2005 / Notices those seven companies who produce software which might be considered like or directly competitive with the four CSC software programs at issue: Performance Plus, JETS, Repetitive Payment System, and Vantage-One. Of the companies surveyed, none had imported software in a physical medium, and while some stated that new business opportunities were always possible, none had expressed that they were likely to import any software. Specifically, one competitor stated that it has ‘‘never used offshore resources for anything,’’ another competitor stated that their software was written ‘‘100% Stateside’’ and that there was ‘‘no intention to import anything—no software, no code’’ and a third competitor stated ‘‘no way, no how’’ that the company imports software. Because all the competitors are domestic, and none of them have increased or are likely to increase imports, it is impossible for consumers of the software code or software on a physical medium to buy an imported product ‘‘like or directly competitive’’ to CSC’s. Obviously, CSC has increased its ‘‘delivery’’ of software code to the United States, but because software code is not an article for the purposes of the Trade Act, such an increase does not qualify to make plaintiffs eligible for TAA benefits. Conclusion After reconsideration on remand, I affirm the original notice of negative determination of eligibility to apply for adjustment assistance for workers and former workers of Computer Sciences Corporation, Financial Services Group, East Hartford, Connecticut.

The notice will be published soon in the Federal Register. At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of velvet and velour. New information shows that that all workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Olney Wallcoverings. Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of DeBall, Inc., Asheville, North Carolina who was adversely affected by a shift in production to Canada.
