T&H Sewing Company, San Francisco, CA; Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    By application of March 23, 2006, Chinese Progressive Association 
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 
issued on February 22, 2006, based on the finding that imports of 
women's and children's dresses and blouses did not contribute 
importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift of 
production to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was 
published in the Federal Register on March 22, 2006 (71 FR 14549).
    To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied 
additional information regarding the subject firm's customer. Upon 
further review of the facts during the initial investigation and 
information provided by the subject firm's major customer, it was 
determined that this customer increased its reliance on imports of sewn 
garments during the relevant time period.
    Furthermore, the investigation revealed that there were substantial 
and increasing aggregate United States imports of women's and girls' 
dresses and blouses during the relevant period. The ratio of United 
States imports to United States shipments of women's and girls' dresses 
in 2005 exceeded 200 percent.
    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 additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or 
directly competitive with those produced at T&H Sewing Company, San 
Francisco, California, 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 T&H Sewing Company, San Francisco, California, 
who became totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after December 16, 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 also eligible to apply 
for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the 
Trade Act of 1974.

    Signed in Washington, DC this 5th day of April 2006.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
