Compass Group USA, Inc. Canteen: Webster City, Iowa; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated July 9, 2010, a petitioner 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 signed on May 24, 2010, and the Notice of 
Determination was published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2010 
(75 FR 34175).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the findings that the subject firm did not, during the 
investigation period, shift to a foreign county services like or 
directly competitive with the cafeteria services or vending machine 
services supplied by the workers or acquire from a foreign country 
services like or directly competitive with the cafeteria services or 
vending machine services supplied by the workers; that the workers' 
separation, or threat of separation, was not related to any increase in 
imports of like or directly competitive food services or a shift in 
service/acquisition of such food services abroad, and that the workers 
did not supply a service that was directly used in the production of an 
article or the supply of service by a firm that employed a worker group 
that is eligible to apply for TAA based on the aforementioned article 
or service.
    The request for reconsideration stated that the subject workers 
provide ``food services in direct support of Electrolux'' and alleges 
that the shift of production by Electrolux to Mexico resulted in a 
shift to Mexico in the supply of food service services. The request 
also alleges that, in the case of adversely-affected secondary workers, 
the term ``value-added'' applies only to production process and does 
not apply to services.
    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, as 
amended.

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.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 21st day of September 2010.
