Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 190 / Monday, October 2, 2006 / Notices Employment and Training Administration The investigation was initiated on August 10, 2006, in response to a petition filed by a company official on behalf of workers of Meredith’s Home Fashions, Fall River, Massachusetts. The workers produce window curtains. The investigation revealed that sales and employment at the subject firm decreased during the period under investigation. The Department of Labor surveyed the subject firms’ major declining customers regarding their purchases of window curtains in 2004, 2005 and January through July 2006 over the corresponding 2005 period. The survey revealed a major customer increased their reliance on imported window curtains during the period under investigation. 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 addition, 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. [TA–W–59,880] Conclusion Meredith’s Home Fashions; Fall River, MA; Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance After careful review of the facts obtained in the investigation, I conclude that increased imports of window curtains produced by Meredith’s Home Fashions, Fall River, Massachusetts 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: DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–59,711] KPMG LLP, Employed On-Site at Bearing Point, Inc.; Charlotte, NC; Dismissal of Application for Reconsideration Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(C) an application for administrative reconsideration was filed with the Director of the Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance for workers at KPMG LLP, Employed On-Site at Bearing Point, Inc., Charlotte, North Carolina. The application did not contain new information supporting a conclusion that the determination was erroneous, and also did not provide a justification for reconsideration of the determination that was based on either mistaken facts or a misinterpretation of facts or of the law. Therefore, dismissal of the application was issued. TA–W–59,711; KPMG LLP, Employed On-Site at Bearing Point, Inc., Charlotte, North Carolina, (September 22, 2006).
