Notice of Determinations Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, 58475-58481 [E5-5478]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 193 / Thursday, October 6, 2005 / Notices support the allegation that workers of the subject firm produce an article. A company official was contacted for clarification in regard to the nature of the work performed at the subject facility. The official stated the petitioning group of workers at the subject firm was responsible for software development, in particular design, programming, testing and maintenance/support. The official further clarified that customers can either access and download software via the Internet or purchase CD–ROMs with the desktop software. The official stated that the desktop client software developed at the subject firm is mass produced in a CD form for further distribution to customers. The sophistication of the work involved is not an issue in ascertaining whether the petitioning workers are eligible for trade adjustment assistance, but rather only whether they produced an article within the meaning of section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. Technical writing design, programming and testing of the software is not considered production of an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act. Petitioning workers do not produce an ‘‘article’’ within the meaning of the Trade Act of 1974. Information electronic databases, technical documentation and codes, are not tangible commodities, and they are not listed on the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), as classified by the United States International Trade Commission (USITC), Office of Tariff Affairs and Trade Agreements, which describes articles imported to the United States. To be listed in the HTS, an article would be subject to a duty on the tariff schedule and have a value that makes it marketable, fungible and interchangeable for commercial purposes. Although a wide variety of tangible products are described as articles and characterized as dutiable in the HTS, informational products that could historically be sent in letter form and that can currently be electronically transmitted are not listed in the HTS. Such products are not the type of products that customs officials inspect and that the TAA program was generally designed to address. The investigation on reconsideration supported the findings of the primary investigation that the petitioning group of workers does not produce an article. However, it was revealed that electronic desktop software created by the subject company is recorded on media devices (CD–ROMs) for further mass-production and distribution. Thus, it was determined that the petitioning group of VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:52 Oct 05, 2005 Jkt 208001 service workers support production of CD–ROMs containing software. The Department conducted an additional investigation to determine whether workers can be considered eligible for TAA as directly-impacted workers in support of production of CD– ROMs containing desktop software. The group eligibility requirements for directly-impacted (primary) workers under section 222(a) the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, can be satisfied in either of two ways: I. Section (a)(2)(A) all of the following must be satisfied: A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; B. The sales or production, or both, of such firm or subdivision have decreased absolutely; and C. Increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles produced by such firm or subdivision have contributed importantly to such workers’ separation or threat of separation and to the decline in sales or production of such firm or subdivision; or II. Section (a)(2)(B) both of the following must be satisfied: A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; B There has been a shift in production by such workers’ firm or subdivision to a foreign country of articles like or directly competitive with articles which are produced by such firm or subdivision; and C. One of the following must be satisfied: 1. The country to which the workers’ firm has shifted production of the articles is a party to a free trade agreement with the United States; 2. The country to which the workers’ firm has shifted production of the articles is a beneficiary country under the Andean Trade Preference Act, African Growth and Opportunity Act, or the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act; or 3. There has been or is likely to be an increase in imports of articles that are like or directly competitive with articles which are or were produced by such firm or subdivision. The investigation of Galileo International, Travel Distribution Services, Centennial, Colorado, revealed that criteria (I.B) and (II.B) were not met. According to the information provided PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58475 by the company official, sales and production of CD–ROMs containing desktop software did not decline during the relevant time period. Moreover, the subject firm did not shift production abroad, nor did it increase company imports of CD–ROMs containing desktop software, during the relevant period. The petitioner further alleges that because workers lost their jobs due to a transfer of job functions to India, petitioning workers should be considered import impacted. The company official stated that coding and programming job functions were outsourced to a third party joint venture in India. The official also stated that all design documents and other documentation written in India is returned to the United States through electronic mail or Internet. Technical writing of informational documentation that is electronically transmitted is not considered production within the context of TAA eligibility requirements, so there are no imports of products in this instance. Further, as the PDF files and technical documentation do not become products until they are recorded on media device, there was no shift in production of an ‘‘article’’ abroad within the meaning of the Trade Act of 1974. Conclusion After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance for workers and former workers of Galileo International, Travel Distribution Services, Centennial, Colorado. Signed at Washington, DC this 20th day of September, 2005. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination signed on August 8, 2005 was based on the finding that imports of raw cane sugar and blackstrap molasses did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject plant and no shift of production to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was published in the Federal Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Register on September 8, 2005 (70 FR 53389). To support the request for reconsideration, the company official supplied additional information. Upon further review and contact with the subject firm’s major declining customers, it was revealed that the customers increased their reliance on imported raw cane sugar and blackstrap molasses during the relevant period. The imports accounted for a meaningful portion of the subject plant’s lost sales and production. The investigation further revealed that production and employment at the subject firm declined 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 DEPARTMENT OF LABOR PO 00000 58481 After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced at Iberia Sugar Cooperative, Inc., New Iberia, Louisiana, 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 Iberia Sugar Cooperative, Inc., New Iberia, Louisiana who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after June 20, 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.’’ E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
