The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 3, 2008 (73 FR 51529). At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) wafers. New information shows that leased workers of Securitas Security Systems and Global Tech Building Services Corp. were employed on-site at the Eugene, Oregon location of Hynix Semiconductor Manufacturing America, Inc. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include leased workers of Securitas Security Systems and Global Tech Building Services Corp. working on-site at the Eugene, Oregon location of the subject firm. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers employed at Hynix Semiconductor Manufacturing America, Inc. who were adversely affected by increased imports following a shift in production of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) wafers to South Korea. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–63,747 is hereby issued as follows: All workers of Hynix Semiconductor Manufacturing America, Inc. including onsite leased workers from Securitas Security Systems and Global Tech Building Services Corp., Eugene, Oregon, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 24, 2007, through August 20, 2010, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.

The Department’s Notice of affirmative determination was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2008 (73 FR 55137). Workers produce printed materials including postcards, calendars, and journals. The Department’s determination regarding the subject workers’ eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) was based on the Department’s findings that, during the relevant period, there were no increased imports by the subject firm or its major declining customer or a shift of production by the subject firm to a foreign country.

In order to apply for TAA, petitioners must meet the worker group eligibility requirements for directly-impacted (primary) workers under Section 222(a) the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. The eligibility requirements can be met by satisfying either Section (a)(2)(A) or Section (a)(2)(B). Under Section (a)(2)(A), the following criteria must be met: A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; and B. The sales or production, or both, of such firm or subdivision have decreased absolutely; and C. Increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles produced by such firm or subdivision have contributed importantly to such workers’ separation or threat of separation and to the decline in sales or production of such firm or subdivision. Under Section (a)(2)(B), the following criteria must be met: A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; and B. There has been a shift in production by such workers’ firm or subdivision to a foreign country of articles like or directly competitive with PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10/21/08 10/21/08 10/21/08 10/21/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/23/08 10/23/08 10/23/08 10/23/08 10/23/08 10/24/08 10/24/08 10/24/08 10/24/08 10/24/08 10/24/08 Date of petition 10/16/08 10/17/08 10/17/08 10/16/08 09/28/08 10/09/08 10/22/08 10/16/08 10/21/08 10/21/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/22/08 10/10/08 10/21/08 10/23/08 10/23/08 10/21/08 10/01/08 10/23/08 10/13/08 articles which are produced by such firm or subdivision; and C. One of the following must be satisfied: 1. The country to which the workers’ firm has shifted production of the articles is a party to a free trade agreement with the United States; or 2. The country to which the workers’ firm has shifted production of the articles is a beneficiary country under the Andean Trade Preference Act, African Growth and Opportunity Act, or the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act; or 3. There has been or is likely to be an increase in imports of articles that are like or directly competitive with articles which are or were produced by such firm or subdivision. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed that the subject firm closed permanently in July 2008. Therefore, the Department affirms that the first two criteria of Section 222(a)(2)(A) have been met. Based on the allegations in the request for reconsideration, the scope of the reconsideration investigation is limited to whether or not the third criteria in Section 222(a)(2)(A) has been met (increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced by the subject firm contributed importantly to the workers’ separation and to subject firm sales or production declines). During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed that the subject firm did not import printed material or articles like or E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1
