The petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn. Consequently, the investigation has been terminated. By application dated February 19, 2009, the petitioner requested administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding workers’ eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was issued on February 6, 2009. The Notice of Determination was published in the Federal Register on March 3, 2009 (74 FR 9283). The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the finding that imports of cigarettes did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm. The investigation revealed that the subject firm shifted production of cigarettes to foreign countries during the period under investigation. However, these products were not likely to be imported back to the United States. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided additional information regarding a shift in production of cigarettes to Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, and Mexico. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974. 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 16th day of March 2009. Linda G. Poole, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

The workers produce zinc concentrate. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination issued on January 26, 2009, based on the finding that there were no increased imports of zinc concentrate, nor did the subject firm shift production of zinc concentrate to a foreign country. Since the workers were denied eligibility to apply for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) they were also denied eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers. The notice was published in the Federal Register on February 23, 2009 (74 FR 8116). New information obtained by the Department shows that there was a shift in production of zinc concentrate from the workers’ firm to Mexico. Employment at the subject firm has declined. Based on these findings, it is determined in this case that the requirements of (a)(2)(B) of Section 222 have been met. In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance ATAA, the group eligibility requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act must be met.

Teck-Washington, Inc.; Pend Oreille Mine; a Subsidiary of Teck-
American, Inc.; Metaline Falls, WA; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reopening

    The Department, on its own motion, reopened its investigation for 
workers and former workers of Teck-Washington, Inc., Pend Oreille Mine, 
Metaline Falls, Washington. The workers produce zinc concentrate.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
issued on January 26, 2009, based on the finding that there were no 
increased imports of zinc concentrate, nor did the subject firm shift 
production of zinc concentrate to a foreign country. Since the workers 
were denied eligibility to apply for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) 
they were also denied eligibility to apply for alternative trade 
adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on February 23, 2009 (74 FR 8116).
    New information obtained by the Department shows that there was a 
shift in production of zinc concentrate from the workers' firm to 
Mexico.
    Employment at the subject firm has declined.
    Based on these findings, it is determined in this case that the 
requirements of (a)(2)(B) of Section 222 have been met.
    In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility 
to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance ATAA, the group 
eligibility requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act must be met. 
The Department has determined in this case that the requirements of 
Section 246 have been met.
    A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and 
possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions 
in the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful consideration of the new facts obtained on reopening, 
it is concluded that there was a shift in production by the workers' 
firm or subdivision to Mexico of articles that are like or directly 
competitive with those produced by the subject firm or subdivision.
    In accordance with the provisions of the Trade Act of 1974, I make 
the following revised determination:


[[Page 14594]]


    All workers of Teck-Washington, Inc., Pend Oreille Mine, A 
Subsidiary of Teck-American, Inc., Metaline Falls, Washington, who 
became totally or partially separated from employment on or after 
January 6, 2008, 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.

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 13th day of March 2009.
