Non-Metallic Components, Inc., Rib Lake, Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    On November 8, 2007, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application on Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on November 16, 2007 (72 FR 64685).
    The previous investigation initiated on July 24, 2007, resulted in 
a negative determination issued on September 19, 2007, was based on the 
finding that imports of custom injection molded plastic parts did not 
contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no 
shift in production to countries that are Party to a Free Trade 
Agreements with the United States or beneficiary countries occurred. 
The denial notice was published in the Federal Register on October 3, 
2007 (72 FR 56385).
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided 
additional information regarding the subject firm's declining 
customers.
    Based on the new information, the Department conducted a survey of 
a major declining customer regarding its purchases of like or directly 
competitive products with plastic parts manufactured by the subject 
firm. The survey revealed that the major declining customer increased 
imports of plastic parts during the relevant period.
    In accordance with Section 246 of 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 Non-Metallic Components, 
Inc., Rib Lake, Wisconsin, 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 Non-Metallic Components, Inc., Rib Lake, 
Wisconsin, who became totally or partially separated from employment 
on or after July 18, 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.''
