Download as PDF 65516 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 205 / Monday, October 25, 2010 / Notices The determination was issued on July 30, 2010, and the Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on August 13, 2010 (75 FR 49532). The workers provide storage services. The negative determination was based on the finding that a shift of production to Canada in 2006 did not contribute importantly to separations at the subject firm because, during the period of the investigation, the subject firm did not produce an article; rather, the subject firm provided storage services for other subsidiaries of AMG, the parent company, and those storage services were shifted to an affiliate domestic facility. In addition, the subject firm did not supply services to a firm that employed a worker group that is currently eligible to apply for TAA. The request for reconsideration alleges that the workers did not supply the services identified in the determination. The worker also states that the subject firm is in the process of permanently decommissioning and shifted operations to various facilities throughout the United States as well as Canada, Brazil, England, and Mexico. 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 7th day of October 2010. Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

American Spring Wire Corporation, Kankakee, IL; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated August 24, 2010, workers requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding

determination was issued on July 30, 2010 and the Notice of 
Determination was published in the Federal Register on August 13, 2010 
(75 FR 49532). The workers produce metal stampings.
    The negative determination was based on the findings that there was 
no increase in imports of metal stampings (or like or directly 
competitive articles) by the subject firm or its customers, and no 
shift to/acquisition from a foreign country by the workers' firm of 
article like or directly competitive with the metal stampings produced 
by the subject 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 used the component parts 
in the production of the article that was the basis for the 
certification.
    The request for reconsideration alleges that the subject firm 
supplied component parts to firms in the automotive industry and 
asserts that increased imports of finished articles that contain 
foreign-made component parts like or directly competitive with the

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

Conclusion

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