Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Shelton, Washington; Simpson Lumber 
Company, LLC, Tacoma, Washington; Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, 
Longview, Washington; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reconsideration

    On May 9, 2012, the Department of Labor issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Shelton, Washington 
(TA-W-81,372), Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Tacoma, Washington (TA-W-
81,372A), and Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Longview, Washington (TA-W-
81,372B) (hereafter referred to collectively as ``the subject firm'' or 
``Simpson Lumber Company''). The workers are engaged in activities 
related to the production of dimension lumber, primarily used in 
housing construction, remodel, and repair. The worker group does not 
include leased workers.
    The reconsideration investigation revealed that customer imports of 
dimensional lumber (or like or directly competitive articles) during 
the relevant period contributed importantly to the worker group 
separations and production declines at each of the afore-mentioned 
locations of Simpson Lumber Company.
    Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or 
proportion of the workers in each of the afore-mentioned locations of 
Simpson Lumber Company have become totally or partially separated, or 
are threatened to become totally or partially separated.
    A significant number or proportion means at least three workers in 
a firm (or appropriate subdivision thereof) with a work force of fewer 
than fifty workers or at least five percent of the workers in a firm 
(or appropriate subdivision thereof) with a work force of fifty or more 
workers. 29 CFR 90.2
    Section 222(a)(2)(A)(i) has been met because production of 
dimension lumber at each of the afore-mentioned locations of Simpson 
Lumber Company has decreased absolutely during the period under 
investigation.
    Section 222(a)(2)(A)(ii) has been met because customer imports of 
articles like or directly competitive with the dimensional lumber 
produced by Simpson Lumber Company have increased (absolutely or 
relatively) during the relevant period.
    Finally, Section 222(a)(2)(A)(iii) has been met because the 
increased customer imports of articles like or directly competitive 
with dimensional lumber contributed importantly to the worker group 
separations and production declines at each of the afore-mentioned 
locations of Simpson Lumber Company.
    Contributed importantly means a cause which is important but not 
necessarily more important than other cause. 29 CFR 90.16(b)(3)

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained during the 
reconsideration investigation, I determine that workers of Simpson 
Lumber Company, LLC, Shelton, Washington, Tacoma, Washington and 
Longview, Washington, engaged in employment related to the production 
of dimension lumber, 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 Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Shelton, Washington 
(TA-W-81,372), Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Tacoma, Washington (TA-
W-81,372A), and Simpson Lumber Company, LLC, Longview, Washington 
(TA-W-81,372B), who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after February 21, 2011, through two years from the 
date of certification, and all workers in the group threatened with 
total or partial separation from employment on the date of 
certification through two years from the date of certification, are 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title 
II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
