Algonac Cast Products, Inc., Algonac, MI; Notice of Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated October 25, 2010, a worker requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding 
workers' eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) 
applicable to workers and former workers of Algonac Cast Products, 
Inc., Algonac, Michigan (subject firm). The determination was issued on 
September 24, 2010. The Department's Notice of Determination was 
published in the Federal Register on October 8, 2010 (75 FR 62427). The 
workers are engaged in activities related to the production of marine 
hardware (i.e. rudders, struts, stuffing boxes, rudder arm, rudder 
support, rudder clevis, etc.) and are not separately identifiable by 
article produced.
    The negative determination was based on the Department's findings 
that the subject firm did not import or shift their production of 
marine hardware to a foreign country during the relevant period; that 
the customers did not increase their reliance on imported marine 
hardware while concurrently decreasing their purchases from the subject 
firm; that worker separations or threats of separation were not related 
to an increase in imports of marine hardware; and that the workers did 
not produce an article that was incorporated in the production of an 
article by a firm whose workers were certified eligible to apply for 
TAA.
    The request for reconsideration alleged that a lost bid with Sea 
Ray Boats Corporation contributed importantly to worker separations at 
the subject firm.
    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 
petitioning 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 10th day of November, 2010.
