Renfro Corporation, Hot Sox Warehouse, Secaucus, NJ; Notice of 
Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated September 6, 2007, a company official requested 
administrative reconsideration by the U.S. Department of Labor (the 
Department) of the Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to 
Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment 
Assistance, applicable to workers and former workers of Renfro 
Corporation, Hot Sox Warehouse, Secaucus, New Jersey (the subject 
firm). The Department's determination was issued on August 8, 2007. The 
Department's Notice of determination was published in the Federal 
Register on August 27, 2007 (72 FR 49024).
    The negative determination was based on the Department's findings 
that the subject workers, who are engaged in the packaging and 
distribution of socks produced abroad, are not engaged in employment 
related to the production of an article within the meaning of Section 
222(a)(2) of the Trade Act of 1974 (the Act) and do not support a firm 
or appropriate subdivision that produces an article domestically. The 
Department concluded that the workers cannot be considered import 
impacted or affected by a shift in production of an article.
    In the request for reconsideration, the company official provided 
additional information that showed that the subject workers are engaged 
in activity related to the production of packaged socks.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed 
that the subject firm ceased operations and obtained new information 
that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with 
the packaged socks produced by the subject workers contributed 
importantly to workers' separations.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department herein presents the results of its 
investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA. 
The Department has determined in this case that the group eligibility 
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 Renfro Corporation, Hot Sox 
Warehouse, Secaucus, New Jersey, 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 Renfro Corporation, Hot Sox Warehouse, Secaucus, 
New Jersey, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after June 28, 2006, 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 at Washington, DC this 24th day of October 2007.
