Leased Workers From Adecco, Carol Harris, Unlimited Staffing, and 
Staffmark, Working On-Site at II-VI, Inc., Infrared Optics-Saxonburg 
Division, Saxonburg, PA; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reconsideration

    The initial investigation, initiated on November 10, 2011, resulted 
in a negative determination, issued on February 8, 2012, that was based 
on the findings that the subject firm did not experience a decline in 
sales or production nor did the subject firm shift production to a 
foreign country during the relevant period. The determination was 
applicable to workers and former workers of II-VI, Inc., Infrared 
Optics-Saxonburg Division, Saxonburg, Pennsylvania. The Department's 
Notice of negative determination was published in the Federal Register 
on February 14, 2012 (77 FR 8281). The workers' firm is engaged in 
activities related to the production of infrared and CO2 
laser optics and related materials.
    The workers of II-VI, Inc., Infrared Optics-Saxonburg Division, 
Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, were previously certified eligible to apply 
for TAA under TA-W-64,895. The certification did not include on-site 
leased workers from Adecco, Carol Harris, Unlimited Staffing, and 
Staffmark.
    To support the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied 
additional information regarding a shift in production to a foreign 
country to supplement that which was gathered during the initial 
investigation.
    Based on information provided during the reconsideration 
investigation, the Department determines that worker separations at the 
subject firm are related to a shift in the production of like or 
directly competitive articles to a foreign country.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of II-VI, Inc., Infrared 
Optics-Saxonburg Division, Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, who were engaged in 
employment related to production of infrared and CO2 laser 
optics and related materials, meet the worker group certification 
criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). In 
accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I make the 
following certification:

    All workers of II-VI, Inc., Infrared Optics-Saxonburg Division, 
Saxonburg, Pennsylvania (TA-W-81,071) who became totally or 
partially separated from employment on or after January 27, 2011, 
through April 27, 2014, and all workers in the group threatened with 
total or partial separation from employment on April 27, 2012 
through April 27, 2014, are eligible to apply for adjustment 
assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended; and all leased workers from Adecco, Carol Harris, Unlimited 
Staffing, and Staffmark, working on-site at II-VI, Inc., Infrared
