The workers are in direct support of production of numerous assembly plants of Ford Motor Company, whose workers were certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance. New information shows that leased workers from MSX, New Dimension Group, and Kelly Services were employed on-site at the Dearborn, Michigan location of Ford Motor Company, Product Development Center. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm to be considered leased workers. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this revised determination to include workers leased from MSX, New Dimension Group and Kelly Services working on-site at the Dearborn, Michigan location of the subject firm. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers employed at Ford Motor Company, Product Development and Engineering Center, Dearborn, Michigan who were adversely affected by increased imports.

Weyerhaeuser NR Company, Raymond Lumber Mill, Raymond, WA; Notice 
of Revised Determination Reconsideration

    By application dated June 23, 2009, the International Association 
of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, Woodworkers District Lodge W1 
requested administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative 
determination regarding eligibility for workers and former workers of 
Weyerhaeuser NR Company, Raymond Lumber Mill, Raymond, 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 July 6, 2009, and published in the Federal Register on 
July 14, 2009 (74 FR 34039).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
issued on June 5, 2009, was based on the finding that imports of 
softwood 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 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, 
Raymond Lumber Mill, Raymond, 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, Raymond Lumber Mill, 
Raymond, Washington, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after March 23, 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.
