Download as PDF yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 11, 2008 / Notices 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 was filed on behalf of workers at J.J. Peiger Company, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The workers were engaged in the wholesale distribution of upholstery fabrics and supplies. The denial was based on the findings that during the relevant time period, the subject company 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. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner states that ‘‘in the past eight years, a number of JJP employees has dropped from eleven to six.’’ To support his allegations, the petitioner submitted the names of seven employees who were no longer with the company. When assessing eligibility for TAA, the Department exclusively considers the relevant employment data (for one year prior to the date of the petition and any imminent layoffs) for the facility where the petitioning worker group was employed. The Department contacted the company official to verify employment numbers at the subject firm since January 15, 2007 as well as the status of the employment of the workers provided by the petitioner in the reconsideration request. The company official confirmed that only one worker from the list was separated from the subject firm in the relevant period. Furthermore, the company official confirmed that overall employment did not decline at the subject firm since January 2007. As employment levels at the subject facility did not decline during the relevant time period and there was no threat of separations during the relevant period, criterion (1) has not been met. 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. Furthermore, the investigation revealed that the workers of J.J. Peiger Company, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania are engaged in a wholesale distribution of upholstery fabrics and supplies. These functions, as described above, are not considered production of an article. Therefore, workers of the worker group VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:44 Mar 10, 2008 Jkt 214001 13019 do not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. The petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn. Consequently, the investigation has been terminated. Conclusion Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of March, 2008. Richard Church, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
