The notice was published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2007 (72 FR 69710). At the request of a petitioner, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of door panels and various other injection molded parts for the automobile industry. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:48 Jan 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 New information shows that workers of Hubbard Supply Company were employed on-site at the Brighton, Michigan location of Atreum-Brighton, a subsidiary of Magna International, Decoma International Division. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm and should be considered part of the affected worker group. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers of Hubbard Supply Company working onsite at the Brighton, Michigan location of the subject firm. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers at Atreum-Brighton, a subsidiary of Magna International, Decoma International Division, Brighton, Michigan who were adversely-impacted by a shift in production of door panels and various other injection molded parts for automobile industry to Mexico and Canada. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–62,396 is hereby issued as follows: 2543 [TA–W–62,449] former workers of the subject firm to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). The denial notice was signed on November 16, 2007 and published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2007 (72 FR 69711). Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The TAA petition, which was filed on behalf of workers at Newburgh Hardwood Co., Inc., Newburgh, Indiana engaged in the hardwood veneer consulting services, was denied based on the findings that the firm did not employ a worker group during the one year prior to the petition filing date, as required by Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. A worker group means three or more workers in a firm or appropriate subdivision. The subject firm did not meet this threshold level. The investigation also revealed that the subject firm does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222(a)(2) of the Act. In the request for reconsideration the petitioner indicates a number of reasons as to why he should be eligible for TAA. When assessing eligibility for TAA, the Department makes its determinations based on the requirements as outlined in Section 222 of the Trade Act. In particular, the Department defines an eligible worker ‘‘group’’ as ‘‘three or more workers in a firm or an appropriate subdivision thereof.’’ As subject firm’s total worker number was one in the relevant period, the worker does not meet the group eligibility requirements for trade adjustment assistance. Newburgh Hardwood Co., Inc. Conclusion Newburgh, IN; Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. All workers of Atreum-Brighton, a subsidiary of Magna International, Decoma International Division, including on-site leased workers from Qualified Staffing and Aerotek, and on-site workers from Hubbard Supply Company, Brighton, Michigan, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after October 30, 2006, through November 14, 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.
