Weyerhaeuser NR Company I-Level Lumber--Aberdeen Division, 
Aberdeen, WA; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    By application dated May 19, 2009, the Carpenters Industrial 
Council/United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local 
Union 3099 requested administrative reconsideration of the Department's 
negative determination regarding eligibility for workers and former 
workers of Weyerhaeuser NR Company, I-Level Lumber--Aberdeen Division, 
Aberdeen, Washington (subject firm) to apply for Trade Adjustment 
Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). 
The Department's Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding 
Application for Reconsideration was signed on June 10, 2009, and 
published in the Federal Register on June 18, 2009 (74 FR 28956).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
issued on May 8, 2009, was based on the finding that imports of 
Douglass fir and Western Hemlock green dimensional lumber did not 
contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no 
shift in production to a foreign source occurred.
    On reconsideration, the Department requested an additional list of 
customers of the subject firm and conducted a customer survey to 
determine whether imports of Douglass fir and Western Hemlock green 
dimensional lumber and of like or directly competitive articles 
(softwood dimensional lumber) negatively impacted employment at the 
subject firm.
    The survey of the declining customers revealed that a major 
declining customer increased its reliance on imported softwood 
dimensional lumber during the relevant period.
    In accordance with section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results 
of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply 
for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers.
    In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility 
to apply for 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 
within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or 
directly competitive with those produced at Weyerhaeuser NR Company, I-
Level Lumber--Aberdeen Division, Aberdeen, Washington, contributed 
importantly to the declines in sales or production and to the total or 
partial separation of workers at the subject firm. In accordance with 
the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification:

    All workers of Weyerhaeuser NR Company, I-Level Lumber--Aberdeen 
Division, Aberdeen, Washington, who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after February 2, 2008, through two 
years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for 
adjustment assistance under section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, 
and are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment 
assistance under section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.


    Signed in Washington, DC this 1st day of September 2009.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
