    By application dated June 11, 2010, a representative of the 
International Union of United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural 
Implement Workers of America (UAW) 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 April 12, 2010 and the Notice of Determination was 
published in the Federal Register on May 20, 2010 (75 FR 28301). The

    The negative determination was based on the findings that there was 
no increase in imports by the firm or customers or a shift to/
acquisition from a foreign country by the workers' firm of articles 
like or directly competitive with the automobiles produced by the 
workers. The investigation also revealed that the workers did not 
produce a component part that was used by a firm that employed workers 
eligible to apply for TAA and that directly incorporated the component 
parts into the article that was the basis for the TAA certification.
    The UAW's request for reconsideration states that production of 
standard cab and extended cab GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado 
vehicles shifted to an affiliated facility in Mexico. The request for 
reconsideration also includes new information in support of the 
allegation.
    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.

is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S.
