The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that there was no shift in production of elevator components (or a like or directly competitive article), that neither the subject firm nor its declining customer increased imports, and that the subject firm was neither a supplier nor downstream producer to a TAAcertified firm. The request for reconsideration stated that the subject firm made not only elevator component parts and repaired elevators but also made complete elevators, and that the workers who produced the elevators are separately identifiable from the workers who supplied elevator repair services. The Department has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record, and 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.
