Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 82 / Friday, April 28, 2006 / Notices 2004 and 2005. The survey revealed that customer(s) increased import purchases while reducing purchases from the subject firm. 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 facts obtained in the investigation, I determine that increased imports of cast aluminum wheels, like or directly competitive with those produced by Hayes Lemmerz International, Huntington, Indiana, contributed importantly to the total or partial separation of workers and to the decline in sales or production at that firm or subdivision. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: ‘‘All workers of Hayes Lemmerz International, Huntington, Indiana, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after February 17, 2005, through two years from the date of 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 16th day of March 2006.

The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination signed on February 9, 2006 was based on the finding that imports of recycled paperboard for the book, binding and game industries 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 March 2, 2006 (71 FR 10716). In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided additional information regarding the subject firm’s customers and requested an investigation relating to secondary impact concerning the subject firm as an upstream supplier to the book, binding and game industries. A review of the new facts determined that the workers of the subject firm may be eligible for TAA on the basis of a secondary upstream supplier impact. The Department conducted an investigation of subject firm workers on the basis of secondary impact, it was revealed that Natick Paperboard Corporation, Paperboard Mill Division, Natick, Massachusetts supplied paperboard that was used in the production of board games and paper based office supply products, and a loss of business with domestic manufacturers (whose workers were certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance) contributed importantly to the workers separation or threat of separation. 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.
