Hanesbrands, Inc., Galax, VA; Notice of Negative Determination on 
Reconsideration

    On May 4, 2010, the Department issued an Affirmative Determination 
Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers and former 
workers of Parkdale Mills (formerly Hanesbrands, Inc.), Galax, 
Virginia. The Department's Notice was published in the Federal Register 
on May 20, 2010 (75 FR 28295).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the finding that Parkdale Mills (formerly Hanesbrands, Inc.), 
Galax, Virginia did not totally or partially separate, or threaten to 
separate, a significant number or proportion of workers as required by 
Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioners alleged that an 
adequate employment decline had occurred and provided additional 
information in support of the allegation.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department of Labor 
requested Hanesbrands, Inc. to submit a new Confidential Data Request 
form as well as written and verbal clarification of previously-
submitted information and additional written information.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed 
that the facility at issue was sold by Hanesbrands, Inc. to Parkdale 
Mills of Gastonia, North Carolina on October 28, 2009 and that yarn 
production increased in 2008 from 2007 levels but decreased during 
January through September 2009 compared to January through September 
2008 levels.
    The petitioners state that separations at the Galax, Virginia 
facility occurred on October 23, 2009 and October 24, 2009, and asserts 
that worker separations occurred because the ``Plant was sold--
reduction in force.''

[[Page 55616]]

    Based on previously-submitted information and new information 
obtained during the reconsideration investigation, the Department 
determines that the subject workers are workers separated from 
Hanesbrands, Inc., Galax, Virginia and not workers separated from 
Parkdale Mills, Galax, Virginia. A careful review of the new 
information revealed that a significant proportion or number of workers 
at Hanesbrands, Inc., Galax, Virginia was totally or partially 
separated, or threatened with such separation, prior to October 28, 
2009.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed 
that Hanesbrands, Inc., Galax, Virginia was an export-only facility 
that produced yarn exclusively for use in foreign countries and that 
Hanesbrands, Inc. did not shift to or acquire from a foreign country 
articles like or directly competitive with the yarn produced at the 
Galax, Virginia facility.
    The reconsideration investigation also revealed that Hanesbrands, 
Inc. did not increase its imports of either articles like or directly 
competitive with the yarn produced at the Galax, Virginia facility or 
the apparel made from fabric woven from the yarn formerly produced at 
the Galax, Virginia facility.
    Based on the information obtained during the initial and 
reconsideration investigations, the Department determines that the 
criteria set forth in Section 222(a) have not been met.
    Since the yarn produced by the subject worker group was exported to 
be used in foreign facilities and worker groups located outside the 
United States and U.S. Territories cannot be eligible to apply for 
Trade Adjustment Assistance, the Department determines that the 
adversely affected secondary workers criteria set forth in Section 
222(c) have not been met.

Conclusion

    After careful reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of 
negative determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance for workers and former workers of Hanesbrands, Inc., Galax, 
Virginia.

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 31st day of August, 2010.
