Download as PDF 5074 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 20 / Tuesday, January 31, 2006 / Notices in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The petition for the workers of Meadow River Hardwood Lumber Company, f/k/a Georgia-Pacific Corp., Rainelle, West Virginia engaged in production of hardwood lumber was denied because the ‘‘contributed importantly’’ group eligibility requirement of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, was not met, nor was there a shift in production from that firm to a foreign country. The investigation revealed that workers separations at the subject firm was attributed to an employee-strike and not increased imports or a shift in production to a foreign country. The petitioner stated that there was no stoppage of work due to a labor dispute, but rather the company was loosing its sales due to increased imports. The petitioner attached a list of customers and requested a customer survey be conducted in order to reveal the import impact. Upon further review of the previous investigation and further contact with the company official the Department conducted a full investigation to determine whether imports of hardwood lumber indeed impacted production at the subject firm and consequently caused workers separations. The investigation revealed that customers provided by the petitioner were former customers of GeorgiaPacific Corp., but were no longer customers of Meadow River Hardwood Lumber Company. The company official provided a list of major customers of the subject firm. The Department conducted a survey of these customers regarding their purchases of hardwood lumber during the relevant time period. The survey revealed that only one customer is importing hardwood lumber, however this customer did not decrease its purchases of hardwood lumber from the subject firm. Moreover, the subject firm does not import hardwood lumber and did not shift production of hardwood lumber abroad. hsrobinson on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:34 Jan 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 Signed at Washington, DC, this 24th day of January, 2006. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc. E6–1103 Filed 1–30–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–30–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–58,268] Simpson Door Company, McCleary Washington Division, McCleary, WA; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration By letter postmarked December 16, 2005 United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local Union No. 2761 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 November 23, 2005 was based on the finding that the subject company did not separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of workers during the relevant time period, as required by section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. The denial notice was published in the Federal Register on December 15, 2005 (70 FR 74368). To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied additional information regarding employment at the subject facility. Upon further contact with the subject firm’s company official, it was revealed that the subject firm separated a significant number of workers during the relevant time period. The investigation also revealed that the subject firm decreased production of wood stile and rail doors while increasing imports of wood stile and rail doors 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 PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 Simpson Door Company, McCleary Washington Division, McCleary, Washington, 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 Simpson Door Company, McCleary Washington Division, McCleary, Washington who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after November 3, 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 20th day of January 2006. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
