The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 27, 2007 (72 FR 54939). At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of laminated fabric and fabric components. New information shows that Hanesbrands, Inc. purchased National Textiles, LLC in June 2006. Workers separated from employment at the Eden Division, Eden, North Carolina and the Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina locations of the subject firm had their wages reported under separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for National Textiles, LLC. Findings also show that there was a previous certification, TA–W–55,365, issued on September 13, 2006, for the workers of the Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina. That certification expired September 13, 2006. To avoid an overlap in worker group coverage for workers of the Forest City, North Carolina location, the certification is being amended to change the impact date from August 7, 2006 to September 14, 2006. Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect these matters. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of Hanesbrands, Inc. who were adversely affected by a shift in production of laminated fabric and fabric components to El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Honduras. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–61,962K and TA–W–61,962L are hereby issued as follows: ‘‘All workers of Hanesbrands, Inc., National Textiles, LLC, Eden Division, Eden, North Carolina (TA–W–61,962K), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 7, 2006 through September 13, 2009, 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;’’ and ‘‘All workers of Hanesbrands, Inc., National Textiles, LLC, Forest City Division, Forest City, North Carolina (TA–W–61,962L), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after September 14, 2006, through September 13, 2009, 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 at Washington, DC, this 11th day of December 2007.

E7–24539 Filed 12–18–07; 8:45 am] By letter dated November 28, 2007, a company official requested administrative reconsideration of the Department’s Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The negative determination was issued on November 13, 2007, and was published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2007 (72 FR 69711). The negative determination was based on the Department’s finding that, during the relevant period, the subject firm did not produce an article within the meaning of section 222(a)(2) of the Trade Act of 1974. Workers performed maintenance of a facility that ceased production prior to the relevant period. The request for reconsideration stated that several workers were not separated prior to the expiration of a previous Trade Adjustment Assistance certification (TA–W–58,039) because VerDate Aug<31>2005 Date of Institution Subject Firm (Petitioners) 21:40 Dec 18, 2007 Jkt 214001 those workers were required in order for the trustee appointed by the bankruptcy court to carry out its responsibilities (to liquidate the assets and settle the affairs of the corporation). The request for reconsideration also stated that the TAA certification of TA– W–58,039 was amended on February 28, 2006 and that the amended certification stated that ‘‘[t]he intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of Liberty Fibers Corporation, a subsidiary of Silva Holdings, Inc., Lowland, Tennessee who was adversely affected by increased customer imports.’’ The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation. Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of December 2007. Linda G. Poole, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
