Bridgeton, MO; Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration By application dated May 15, 2008, the petitioner requested administrative reconsideration of the Department’s negative determination regarding eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA), applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The denial notice was signed on April 10, 2008 and published in the Federal Register on April 23, 2008 (73 FR 21992). VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:08 Jul 11, 2008 Jkt 214001 The request for reconsideration also includes workers of Western Union Financial Services, Inc., St. Charles, Missouri. The initial petition and consequent determination did not include workers of the above mentioned location. If the petitioner wishes the Department to consider TAA eligibility for workers of Western Union Financial Services, Inc. in St. Charles, Missouri, a new petition applicable to these workers should be filed. Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) 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 mis-interpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Date of institution Date of petition The negative TAA determination issued by the Department for workers of Western Union Financial Services, Inc., Bridgeton, Missouri was based on the finding that the worker group does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. The investigation revealed that workers of the subject firm are engaged in call center services. The investigation further revealed that no production of article(s) occurred within the firm or appropriate subdivision within the Western Union Financial Services, Inc. during the relevant time period. The petitioner in the request for reconsideration contends that the Department erred in its interpretation of the work performed by the workers of the subject firm. The petitioner states that the workers of the subject firm ‘‘are customer service representatives picking up telephone calls from customers wishing to send money orders to recipients either in the United States or overseas’’. The petitioner also states that ‘‘the article produced domestically in this case is the money order’’ generated E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1
