Determination was published in the Federal Register on March 5, 2010 
(75 FR 10323). The workers produce hardwood veneer.
    The negative determination was based on the findings that, during 
the relevant period, there was no increase in imports of articles like 
or directly competitive with the hardwood veneer produced by the 
subject firm, and no shift to/acquisition from a foreign country by the

veneer. The investigation also revealed that the subject firm did not 
supply a component part to a firm that employed a worker group eligible 
to apply for TAA and directly incorporated the component part into the 
finished article that was the basis for the TAA certification.
    The request for reconsideration asserts that the Department has 
misinterpreted the statute to the detriment of the petitioning workers. 
Specifically, the workers allege ``the Trade Act does not just look at 
whether the subject firm increased imports, but that imports increased 
in general.'' In support of the request for reconsideration, the

or directly competitive articles from China, Canada, and other 
countries.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the

conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the 
eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.

is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.
