Chester Bednar Rental Realty, Washington, PA; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated December 19, 2007, a company official 
requested administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative 
determination regarding eligibility for workers and former workers of 
Chester Bednar Rental Realty, Washington, Pennsylvania (subject firm) 
to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade 
Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). The determination was issued on December 
11, 2007, and the Department's Notice of negative determination was 
published in the Federal Register on December 31, 2007 (72 FR 74344). 
The subject workers are engaged in buying, renting, repairing, and 
selling single family homes.
    The TAA/ATAA petition was denied because the subject firm did not 
separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of 
workers as required by Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. 
Significant number or proportion of the workers in a firm or 
appropriate subdivision means at least three workers in a workforce of 
fewer than 50 workers, five percent of the workers in a workforce of 
over 50 workers, or at least 50 workers.
    In the request for reconsideration, the company official implied 
that the subject firm had ``cash employees.'' The request for 
reconsideration did not provide any documentation to support the 
position that the subject firm had more than three employees.
    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 8th day of January 2008.
