Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA); Technology-Based Learning (TBL) Initiative, 40391 [E8-15935]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 135 / Monday, July 14, 2008 / Notices after obtaining various financial information about customer’s credit history. The petitioner alleges that the money order, ‘‘consisting of tangible cash at the receiving end of the order’’ is a product just as ‘‘an article or piece of clothing’’, therefore, workers of the subject firm should be considered as engaged in production of articles. The investigation revealed that Western Union is a global leader in money transfer services, offering the ability to send money to various locations, including numerous foreign countries and territories. No articles are produced within Western Union. The workers of Western Union Financial Services, Inc., Bridgeton, Missouri provide customer service support to Western Union customers and agents. These functions, as described above, are not considered production of an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act and while the provision of services may result in printed material, it is incidental to the provision of these services. Money order is a document used by the subject firm as incidental to money transfer services provided by the subject firm. No production took place at the subject facility nor did the workers support production of an article at any domestic affiliated location during the relevant period. The petitioner also alleges that job functions have been shifted from the subject firm overseas. The allegation of a shift to another country might be relevant if it was determined that workers of the subject firm produced an article. However, the investigation determined that workers of Western Union Financial Services, Inc., Bridgeton, Missouri do not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974.
