Download as PDF 4636 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 17 / Friday, January 25, 2008 / Notices Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include leased workers of Aramark, ISS Facility Services, Smith Micro Technologies, Per-Mar Security, B&B Electric, and Market and Johnson working on-site at the Eau Claire, Wisconsin location of the subject firm.

The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of 3M, Electronic Solutions Division to be considered leased workers. ‘‘All workers of 3M Eau Claire, Electronic Solutions Division, including on-site leased workers of Volt, Manpower, Aramark, ISS Facility Services, Smith Micro Technologies, Per-Mar Security, B&B Electric, and Market and Johnson, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after October 30, 2006, through December 4, 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 17th day of January 2008.

The negative determination was issued on October 18, 2007. The Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2007 (72 FR 61686). Workers produce nylon polymer and Minlon, and are not separately identifiable by related article. The petition was denied because the subject firm did not shift production to a foreign country, the subject firm did not import nylon polymer or Minlon, and the subject firm’s major declining customer did not import nylon polymer or Minlon during the relevant period.

We are in the process of gathering further information to help support this position and will forward it to your office as soon as possible.’’ Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), administrative 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 Union did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration of the initial determination. After careful review of the request for reconsideration, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that E:\FR\FM\25JAN1.SGM 25JAN1
