Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 182 / Tuesday, September 22, 2009 / Notices Register on August 20, 2007 (72 FR 46515–46516). The Revised Determination on Reconsideration was amended on January 30, 2009 and July 8, 2009 to include on-site leased workers from Roush Management LLC, Rapid Global Businesses Solutions, Inc., and TAC Automotive. The notices were published in the Federal Register on February 13, 2009 (74 FR 7269) and July 14, 2009 (74 FR 34043) respectively. At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration for workers of the subject firm. 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. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–60,086 is hereby issued as follows: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES All workers of Ford Motor Company, Product Development and Engineering Center, including on-site leased workers from Roush Management LLC, Rapid Global Business Solutions, Inc., TAC Automotive, MSX, New Dimension Group and Kelly Services, Dearborn, Michigan, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after September 14, 2005, through August 8, 2009, 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 at Washington, DC this 26th day of August 2009. Linda G. Poole, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc. E9–22761 Filed 9–21–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–FN–P VerDate Nov<24>2008 21:23 Sep 21, 2009 Jkt 217001 Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–65,700] 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. PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48315 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. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

AGENCY: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Director, Office of Administration, invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments within 60 days from the date of this publication. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Director, Office of Administration, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Record keeping burden. OMB invites public comment. Currently, the National Mediation Board is soliciting comments concerning the new collection of information in the form of an Application for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Services and is interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the agency; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of VerDate Nov<24>2008 21:23 Sep 21, 2009 Jkt 217001 burden accurate; (4) how might the agency enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the agency minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. A. Application for ADR Services Type of Review: New Collection. Title: Application for ADR Services. Frequency: On occasion. Affected Public: Union Officials and Officials of Railroads and Airlines. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: Estimate about 45 annually. Burden Hours: 9. Abstract: The Railway Labor Act, 45 U. S. C., 151 a. General Purposes, provides that the purposes of the Act are (1) to avoid any interruption to commerce or to the operation of any carrier engaged therein. * * * (4) to provide for the prompt and orderly settlement of all disputes concerning rates of pay, rules, or working conditions, and (5) to provide for the prompt and orderly settlement of all disputes growing out of grievances or out of the interpretation or application of agreements concerning rates of pay, rules, or working conditions. In fulfilling its role to administer the Act, the National Mediation Board offers the parties to disputes mediation and arbitration services. On a voluntary basis, training programs in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and facilitation services are also available. These ADR programs are designed to enhance the bargaining and grievance handling skill level of the disputants and to assist the parties in the resolution of disputes. The impact of these ADR programs is that mediation and arbitration can be avoided entirely or the scope and number of issues brought to mediation or arbitration is significantly reduced. This collection is necessary to confirm the voluntary participation of the parties in the ADR process. The information provided by the parties is used by the NMB to schedule the parties for ADR training and facilitation. Based on a recent survey of those who participated in the NMB’s ADR Programs, 94.6% said they were satisfied with the ADR Programs and said they recommend the program for all negotiators. Collecting the brief information on the Application for ADR Services form allows the parties to voluntarily engage the services of the PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NMB in the orderly settlement of all disputes and fulfill the purposes of the Act.
