Steelcase, Inc.; Andersons Desk, Inc.; City of Industry Plant, City of Industry, California; Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance, 60339-60340 [E8-24126]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 198 / Friday, October 10, 2008 / Notices request further states that the appeal is limited to the ‘‘PPAP Dept.’’ The request for reconsideration alleges that the PPAP ‘‘is an essential part of the production process, it is directly involved in the manufacturing of the final product in the production line’’ and that ‘‘Lear Corporation took our jobs to Mexico.’’ The Department has carefully reviewed the worker’s 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 3rd day of October 2008. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
