The previous investigation initiated on April 30, 2008, resulted in a negative determination issued on May 21, 2008, was based on the finding that imports of cold rolled sheet coil did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift in production to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was published in the Federal Register on June 3, 2008 (73 FR 31716). In the request for reconsideration, United Steelworkers, Local Union 1187 provided additional information regarding the subject firm’s customers. The Department requested a list of additional customers from the customer official of the subject firm. Upon further investigation it was determined that Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Corporation, Allenport, Pennsylvania supplied component parts for steel pipe and tube and a loss of business with a manufacturer of steel pipe and tube whose workers were certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance contributed importantly to the separation or threat of separation of workers at Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Corporation, Allenport, Pennsylvania. In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers.
