Union Carbide Corporation a Subsidiary of the Dow Chemical 
Company, West Virginia Operations, South Charleston Technology Park, 
South Charleston, WV; Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding 
Application for Reconsideration

    On August 21, 2008, the Department of Labor (Department) received a 
request for administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative 
determination regarding eligibility to apply for Alternative Trade 
Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) applicable to workers and former workers 
of the subject firm.
    The negative ATAA determination was issued on July 18, 2008, and 
the Department's Notice of determination was published in the Federal 
Register on July 30, 2008 (73 FR 44283). The subject workers are 
engaged in activities (research and development) related to the 
production of various chemicals.
    The negative ATAA determination was based on the Department's 
findings during the initial investigation that conditions within the 
workers' industry are not adverse.
    In the request for reconsideration, workers alleged that 
``employment in the chemical industry for the state of West Virginia 
and our workers' region (Kanawha County) is adverse.'' The request 
included employment statistics for the chemical industry in Kanawha 
County (West Virginia) and for West Virginia.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct 
further investigation.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 26th day of August 2008.
