Reconsideration

    On March 16, 2009, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was published in the 
Federal Register on March 31, 2009 (74 FR 14593).
    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 and no shift of 
production to a foreign source occurred.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that the 
subject firm shifted production of cigarettes to Colombia, Dominican 
Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, and Mexico.
    The Department of Labor contacted a company official to verify this 
information. The company official stated that the subject firm did not 
shift production of cigarettes abroad during the relevant period. 
Furthermore, the company official clarified that the subject firm 
manufactured cigarettes for export to an unaffiliated customer until 
December 2008. The investigation also revealed that the subject firm 
ended their manufacturing agreement with this customer and that the

the basis of a shift in production abroad, the shift in production must 
be implemented by the subject firm or its subdivision.
