Sylmark, Inc., Los Angeles, CA; Notice of Termination of Investigation, 14273 [E8-5224]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 52 / Monday, March 17, 2008 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Chapter 11 bankruptcy (reorganization) on September 29, 2005, and that the case was converted to Chapter 7 bankruptcy (dissolution) on November 21, 2005. Because there were no subject firm sales or production since September 2005, the Department finds that there could not have been any decline in sales or production at the subject firm during the relevant period. Consequently, increased imports could not have ‘‘contributed importantly to * * * the decline in sales or production of’’ the subject firm. Accordingly, the subject workers cannot be certified under section 222(a)(2)(A). Further, the Department finds that because the subject firm permanently closed in September 2005, there was not production that could have shifted to a foreign country. Accordingly, the subject workers cannot be certified under section 222(a)(2)(B). Although the request for reconsideration did not allege that the subject workers were adversely affected as secondary workers (workers of a firm that supply component parts to a TAAcertified company or finished or assembled for a TAA-certified company), the Department expanded the investigation to determine whether they would be eligible to apply for TAA on this basis. Such a certification, under section 223(b)(2), must be based in the certification of a primary firm. Prior to the closure in September 2005, the subject firm produced a final article (rayon staple fiber) and, therefore, neither supplied component parts to other companies nor finished or assembled an article for other companies. Even if the subject firm did engage in such activity, the activity occurred prior to September 2005, and, therefore, occurred prior to the relevant period and cannot be a basis for certification. Accordingly, the subject workers cannot be certified under section 223(b)(2). In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility to apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA), the subject worker group must be certified eligible to apply for TAA. Since the petitioning worker group is denied eligibility to apply for TAA, the subject workers cannot be certified eligible for ATAA. Conclusion After careful reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance for workers and former workers of Liberty Fibers Corporation, Lowland, Tennessee.
