Guardian Automotive, a Subsidiary of Guardian Industries 
Corporation, Including On-Site Leased Workers From Kelly Services and 
Manpower Services, LaGrange, GA; Amended Certification Regarding 
Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Negative 
Determination Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Alternative Trade 
Adjustment Assistance

    In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 
2273), and Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as 
amended, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility 
To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and a Negative Determination 
Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Alternative Trade Adjustment 
Assistance on March 26, 2007, applicable to workers of Guardian 
Automotive, a subsidiary of Guardian Industries Corporation, including 
on-site leased workers from Kelly Services, LaGrange, Georgia. The 
notice was published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2007 (72 FR 
17936).
    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 automotive trim.
    New information shows that in August 2008, the subject firm 
switched its on-site leased worker contract from Kelly Services to 
Manpower Services. The Department has determined that workers leased 
from Manpower Services were sufficiently under the control of Guardian 
Automotive, a subsidiary of Guardian Industries Corporation to be 
considered leased workers.
    Based on these findings, the Department is amending this 
certification to include workers leased from Manpower Services working 
on-site at the LaGrange, Georgia location of the subject firm.

[[Page 72846]]

    The intent of the Department's certification is to include all 
workers employed at Guardian Automotive, a subsidiary of Guardian 
Industries Corporation, LaGrange, Georgia who are secondarily affected.
    The amended notice applicable to TA-W-60,993 is hereby issued as 
follows:

    ``All workers of Guardian Automotive, a subsidiary of Guardian 
Industries Corporation, including on-site leased workers of Kelly 
Services and Manpower Services, LaGrange, Georgia, who became 
totally or partially separated from employment on or after February 
14, 2006, through March 26, 2009, are eligible to apply for 
adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.''

    I further determine that all workers of Guardian Automotive, a 
subsidiary of Guardian Industries Corporation, including on-site leased 
workers from Kelly Services and Manpower Services, LaGrange, Georgia, 
are denied eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment 
assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
