The Department’s Notice of Affirmative Determination regarding the request for reconsideration was published in the Federal Register on March 7, 2007 (73 FR 12463). Workers produce rough sawn softwood dimensional lumber. The initial negative determination was based on the Department’s findings that sales and production at the subject firm remained stable during the relevant period compared to previous year; the subject firm did not shift production to a foreign country; and the subject firm did not import articles like or directly competitive with the lumber produced by the subject workers. The determination also stated that the VerDate Aug<31>2005 Date of nstitution Subject firm (petitioners) 16:15 Apr 23, 2008 Jkt 214001 predominant cause of worker separations is related to the transfer of production to another, domestic, affiliated facility. In the request for reconsideration, dated February 28, 2008, the IAM Woodworkers Local W536 (the Union) alleged that increased imports by Weyerhaeuser Corporation of articles like or directly competitive with softwood dimensional lumber produced at the subject firm contributed importantly to the workers’ separations (‘‘Weyerhaeuser Corporation is the largest producer of softwood dimensional lumber in the United States with significant production facilities in Canada and worldwide’’). To be certified for TAA on the basis of increased imports, the petitioning worker group must meet the criteria set forth under Section 223(a)(2)(A) of the Trade Act of 1974: A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; and B. The sales or production, or both, of such firm or subdivision have decreased absolutely; and C. Increases of imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles produced by such firm or subdivision have contributed importantly to such workers’ separation or threat of separation and to the decline in sales or production of such firm or subdivision. After careful review of previouslysubmitted information, the Department determines that Section 223(a)(2)(A)(A) and Section 223(a)(2)(A)(B) were met.

Under 29 CFR 90.16 (Determinations and certifications of eligibility to apply for adjustment assistance), certification for TAA may be issued if a significant number or proportion of the workers in the subject firm (or an appropriate subdivision of the firm) have become or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; sales and/or production of the subject firm (or an appropriate subdivision of the firm) have decreased absolutely; and increases (absolute or relative) of imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles produced by the subject firm (or an appropriate subdivision of the firm) contributed importantly to the workers’ separation, or threat of separation, and to such decline in sales or production. The regulation also states that ‘‘contributed importantly means a cause which is importantly but not necessarily more important than any other cause.’’ During the reconsideration investigation, the Department determined that there were no increased imports of softwood dimensional lumber during 2007 from 2006 by either the subject firm or Weyerhaeuser. Rather, imports of softwood dimensional lumber by Weyerhaeuser decreased in 2007 from 2006 levels. On reconsideration, the Department confirmed that the predominant cause of the workers’ separations was the shift of production to another, newly-built, domestic facility.
