The Department’s Notice was published in the Federal Register on May 30, 2013 (78 FR 32463). The workers are engaged in employment related to the production of bituminous coal. The subject firm includes on-site leased workers of P&P Construction. Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a mis-interpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that worker separations were not attributable to increased imports of bituminous coal (or articles like or PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52973 directly competitive), by the subject firm or its declining customers, or a shift/acquisition of the production of bituminous coal (or articles like or directly competitive) to/from a foreign country by the workers’ firm during the time period under investigation (2011 and 2012). In the request for reconsideration, a former worker alleged that workers at the subject firm were impacted by the operations of the parent company, Arch Coal, Inc., and the purchasing patterns of its customers. The former worker also alleged that the increased use of natural gas instead of bituminous coal by customers of the subject firm and customers of the parent company led to production declines and worker separations at the subject firm. Further, according to the allegation, the customers that the subject firm previously supplied with bituminous coal switched to gas for their energy use because the two products are directly competitive. Therefore, the former worker requested that the Department expand the reconsideration investigation to examine the operations of the parent company and to evaluate imports of natural gas. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department reviewed and confirmed information collected during the initial investigation, collected additional information from the subject firm and its major customers, and collected and analyzed natural gas data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the U.S. Department of Energy. The reconsideration investigation findings confirmed that neither the subject firm nor its major customers imported articles like or directly competitive with bituminous coal during the relevant period. Additionally, the findings confirmed that the subject firm did not shift the production of bituminous coal to a foreign country or acquire this article, or any articles like or directly competitive, from a foreign country during the period under investigation. The findings of the reconsideration investigation also confirmed that Arch Coal, Inc. acquired the subject firm during the period under investigation but clarified that the subject firm continued to operate independently and retained its own customer base following the acquisition. During the initial investigation, the Department conducted a customer survey on the major customers of the subject firm. The surveyed customers reported no imports of bituminous coal or articles like or directly competitive. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department contacted E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1
