Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 237 / Friday, December 11, 2009 / Notices jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination, based on the finding that imports of light duty diesel engines did not contribute to worker separations at the subject facility and there was no shift in production from the subject firm to foreign country during the period under investigation. The petitioner stated that General Motors is ‘‘getting out of the light truck business’’ and that the workers of the subject firm should be eligible for TAA due to the changes in the program. The investigation revealed that workers of DMAX Ltd., LLC, Dayton, Ohio produced light duty diesel engines. The investigation also revealed that worker separations at the subject facility were not caused by increased imports of light duty diesel engines into the United States nor by a shift in production of light duty diesel engines from the subject facility to a foreign country. DMAX, Ltd, LLC did not import light duty diesel engines and did not shift production abroad. The Department surveyed subject firm’s major customer regarding its purchases of light duty diesel engines in 2007, 2008, January through May 2008 and January through May 2009. The survey revealed no imports during the relevant period. The petitioner did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration of the initial determination. After careful review of the request for reconsideration, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:33 Dec 10, 2009 Jkt 220001 Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC, this 2nd day of December, 2009. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.

Greenville Metals, Inc., Powder Division, Transfer, PA; Notice of 
Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    On October 20, 2009, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on November 5, 2009 (74 FR 57333).
    The initial investigation initiated on May 22, 2009, resulted in a 
negative determination issued on September 28, 2009, was based on the 
finding that imports of powdered metals did not contribute importantly 
to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift in production to 
a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was published in the 
Federal Register on November 17, 2009 (74 FR 59255).
    On reconsideration, the Department requested additional information 
from the subject firm's largest customer to determine whether imports 
of powdered metals negatively impacted employment at the subject firm.
    The survey of the major declining customer revealed that the 
customer directly incorporated powdered metals purchased from the 
subject firm into powdered core. The investigation further revealed 
that the largest customer shifted purchases of powdered metals from the 
subject firm to sources in South East Asia in September 2008. 
Furthermore, this customer increased its imports of powdered core 
containing foreign-manufactured powdered metals during the relevant 
period and this increase in imports contributed importantly to the 
workers' separation at Greenville Metals, Inc., Powder Division, 
Transfer, Pennsylvania.
    The investigation also revealed that sales, production and 
employment at the subject firm declined during the relevant period.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of Greenville Metals, Inc., 
Powder Division, Transfer, Pennsylvania, who are engaged in activities 
related to the production of powdered metals meet the worker group 
certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 
2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19. U.S.C. 2273, I 
make the following certification:

    All workers of Greenville Metals, Inc., Powder Division, 
Transfer, Pennsylvania, who became totally or partially separated 
from employment on or after May 19, 2008, through two years from the 
date of this certification, and all workers in the group threatened 
with total or partial separation from employment on date of 
certification through two years from the date of certification, are 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title 
II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.


    Signed in Washington, DC, this 24th day of November 2009.
