Determinations Terminating Investigations Of Petitions For Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TA-W No.              Subject firm                    Location                        Impact date
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
82,856..............  Communityone Bank, N.A.,  Granite Falls, NC...............
                       Communityone Bank
                       Corp., Loan Services
                       Center f/k/a Bank of
                       Granite.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active 
certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases 
would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be 
covered by more than one certification at a time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TA-W No.              Subject firm                    Location                        Impact date

                       Factiva, Inc.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitions are the subject of ongoing investigations under 
petitions filed earlier covering the same petitioners.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      TA-W No.              Subject firm                    Location                        Impact date
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
82,940..............  Volex, Inc..............  Fisher, IN......................
82,941..............  Volex, Inc..............  Clinton, AR.....................
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the Department issued a negative determination on petitions 
related to the relevant investigation period applicable to the same 
worker group. The duplicative petitions did not present new information 
or a change in circumstances that would result in a reversal of the 
Department's previous negative determination, and therefore, further 
investigation would duplicate efforts and serve no purpose.
