Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         TA-W No.              Subject firm                  Location                       Impact date

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be 
signed by at least three individuals of the petitioning worker group. 
Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the 
petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under 
Section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker 
group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed 
invalid.

                            Tyler Plant.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active 
certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases 
would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be 
covered by more than one certification at a time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitions are the subject of ongoing investigations under 
petitions filed earlier covering the same petitioners.
