Download as PDF ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 156 / Tuesday, August 13, 2013 / Notices that UAW–578 represents and that ‘‘Oshkosh Defense’’ is the only entity related to Oshkosh Corporation that employs members of UAW–578. Further, the reconsideration investigation revealed that the ‘‘access equipment’’ and ‘‘fire and emergency’’ unit have not in the past or present been located in the Oshkosh, Wisconsin area, and that these articles are produced in other parts of the country. The reconsideration investigation further revealed that the subject firm has not imported any articles or services like or directly competitive with the production of, and administrative functions in support of military, logistical, and tactical vehicles, and diverse products for airport products and commercial group (i.e., H-Broom, H-Blower, H-Tractor, P-series Snow Removal Vehicle, S-Series Front Discharge Cement Mixers and AARF axles) produced or performed by the workers of the subject firm. The reconsideration investigation also revealed that the subject firm does not import any finished products that incorporate an article or services like or directly competitive with the articles produced or services supplied by the subject firm. Because almost all of the products manufactured by Oshkosh Defense are supplied to the United States military, no customer survey of imports was conducted. In addition, the reconsideration investigation revealed that the subject firm did not shift production or services like or directly competitive with the administrative services and military, logistical, and tactical vehicles, and diverse products for airport products and commercial group (i.e., H-Broom, H-Blower, H-Tractor, P-Series Snow Removal Vehicle, S-Series Front Discharge Cement Mixers and AARF axles) produced or supplied by the workers of the subject firm, and did not acquire articles or services like or directly competitive with the administrative services and military, logistical, and tactical vehicles, and diverse products for airport products and commercial group (i.e., H-Broom, H-Blower, H-Tractor, P-Series Snow Removal Vehicle, S-Series Front Discharge Cement Mixers and AARF axles) from a foreign country. During the reconsideration investigation, the subject firm addressed a newspaper article submitted by the petitioner which stated, in part, that Oshkosh Corporation was ‘‘bringing work back to the factory that was outsourced—a move that saved 165 production jobs.’’ Specifically, the subject firm confirmed that when production needs extended capacity, the VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:31 Aug 12, 2013 Jkt 229001 work was ‘‘outsourced’’ to local (domestic) vendors. The Department notes that the forementioned article started with the statement ‘‘Faced with deep cuts in U.S. military spending, and the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Oshkosh Corp. is laying off 900 employees in its defense division’’ and stated that the ‘‘Department of Defense is reining in spending.’’ The article also states that the subject firm has facilities in other states that are able to produce similar or directly competitive articles. During the reconsideration investigation, the subject firm also addressed the petitioner’s allegation that Oshkosh Corporation imports specific parts (i.e., ‘‘exhibit f’’). The subject firm confirmed that the parts at issue have never been manufactured by an Oshkosh Defense facility and have always been procured from a foreign country. The subject firm also confirmed that the imported parts are in articles that constitute a negligible percentage of Oshkosh Corporation production. With respect to Section 222(b)(2) of the Act, the reconsideration investigation confirmed that Oshkosh Defense is not a Supplier or Downstream Producer to 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). 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, affirm the denial of the petition for group eligibility of Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to apply for adjustment assistance, in accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273.
