Philips Lighting Company Lamps Division, Danville, KY; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated December 20, 2007, the United Steel, Paper and 
Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service 
workers International Union (the Union) 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 
determination was issued on November 9, 2007. The Department's Notice 
of determination was published in the Federal Register on November 21, 
2007 (72 FR 65607). The subject workers are engaged in the production 
of incandescent glass bulbs and glass ornaments. Workers are separately 
identifiable by product line.
    The determination was based on the Department's findings that the 
subject firm did not shift production of incandescent glass bulbs or 
glass ornaments to a foreign country; the subject firm exports glass 
bulbs abroad for further processing; the subject firm does not import 
articles that are like or directly competitive with the glass bulbs 
produced by the subject firm; and the subject firm's major customers of 
glass ornaments did not purchase imports of glass ornaments during the 
relevant period.
    In the request for reconsideration, the Union alleged that the 
subject firm is importing incandescent lamps with glass bulbs that are 
like or competitive with those produced at the Danville, Kentucky 
facility and that a major customer of the subject firm has replaced 
purchases of glass ornaments from the subject firm with imports. The 
Union's request for reconsideration included support documentation.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the workers' 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 2nd day of January 2008.
