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determinations terminating investigations were issued because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn. 85,143, Fives Giddings & Lewis, LLC, Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. 85,179, Fifty Third Bancorp, Cincinnati, Ohio. The following determinations terminating investigations were issued in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be signed by at least three individuals of the PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 petitioning worker group. Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under Section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed invalid. 85,207, Lifetouch Inc., Eden Prairie, Minnesota. 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. 85,142, JP Morgan Chase and Company, Florence, South Carolina. 85,164, JP Morgan Chase and Company, Florence, South Carolina. 85,201, JP Morgan Chase and Company, Florence, South Carolina. 85,202, JP Morgan Chase and Company, Florence, South Carolina. The following determinations terminating investigations were issued because the petitions are the subject of ongoing investigations under petitions filed earlier covering the same petitioners. 85,255, Citigroup, Tampa, Florida. I hereby certify that the aforementioned determinations were issued during the period of April 28, 2014 through May 2, 2014. These determinations are available on the Department’s Web site tradeact/taa/taa_ search_form.cfm under the searchable listing of determinations or by calling the Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance toll free at 888–365–6822.
