The determination was issued on October 15, 2009. The Notice of Determination will soon be published in the Federal Register. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the finding that imports of alloyed powders and powder metal parts 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 workers of the subject firm did manufacture powder metal parts during the period under investigation. The petitioner also provided additional information regarding customers of the subject firm. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974. By application dated November 17, 2009, the petitioners requested administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding workers’ eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was issued on October 8, 2009. The Notice of Determination will soon be published in the Federal Register. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the finding that imports of wood and aluminum clad windows and patio doors did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm. The investigation revealed that the subject firm did not shift production of wood and aluminum clad windows and patio doors to foreign countries during the period under investigation. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that Jeld-Wen reduced employment levels at the subject facility as a direct result of shifts in production abroad. The petitioner also provided additional information regarding customers of the subject firm. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974. Conclusion Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted.
