Milford Stitching Company, Inc., a Division of GLK, Inc., 
Milford, DE; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated September 13, 2005 a company official 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 August 18, 2005 was based on the finding that imports of 
tablecloths, napkins, bedspreads and fabric shower curtains 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 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 customer, it was revealed that the 
customer increased its reliance on imported fabric shower curtains 
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 of 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 additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or 
directly competitive with those produced at Milford Stitching Company, 
Inc., a division of GLK, Inc., Milford, Delaware, 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 Milford Stitching Company, Inc., a division of 
GLK, Inc., Milford, Delaware who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after July 18, 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.

    Signed in Washington, DC this 30th day of September 2005.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
