Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 120 / Friday, June 21, 2013 / Notices The Department also obtained information regarding the allegation of additional production being shifted to a foreign country. Specifically, the subject firm addressed the petitioner allegations in regard to training workers from other countries. The subject firm confirmed that the training was part of an effort to increase the skill level of employees across TE Connectivity. The Department also confirmed that, during 2010 to present, the subject firm did not shift any additional production or services, like or directly competitive with the articles and services produced and performed by the workers of the subject firm to Mexico, China, or any other country, nor is a shift in production or services scheduled to occur. The Department also reviewed the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) certification of affiliated worker groups and confirmed that the subject firm does not produce any articles or perform any services like or directly competitive with those produced or supplied by worker groups eligible to apply for TAA. The reconsideration investigation also revealed no increased imports by the subject firm of articles or services like or directly competitive with articles and services produced or performed by the workers of the subject firm. The subject firm also confirmed that they did not contract to have like or directly competitive articles or services produced or performed in a foreign country. The subject firm confirmed that they do not supply components or services nor do they perform any finishing services for any of TAA certified locations; hence, the subject firm is not a Supplier, nor does it act as a Downstream Producer for, a firm (or subdivision, whichever is applicable) that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a), and that the group eligibility requirements under Section 222(e) of the Act have not been satisfied. Therefore, after careful review of the request for reconsideration, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Conclusion After careful review, I determine that the requirements of Section 222 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272, have not been met and, therefore, deny the petition for group eligibility of TE Connectivity, CIS-Appliances Division, Jonestown, Pennsylvania, to apply for adjustment assistance, in accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273.
