The negative determination was based on the Department’s findings that the subject firm does not produce an article, within the meaning of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. The request for reconsideration stated that services supplied by the subject workers shifted to a foreign country. The petitioner did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration of the initial determination. Based on these findings, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. Conclusion After careful review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision.

[These are not toll-free numbers.] SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act) allows the mine operator or representative of miners to file a petition to modify the application of any mandatory safety standard to a coal or other mine if the Secretary of Labor determines that: 1. An alternative method of achieving the result of such standard exists which will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners of such mine by such standard; or 2. That the application of such standard to such mine will result in a diminution of safety to the miners in such mine. In addition, the regulations at 30 CFR 44.10 and 44.11 establish the requirements and procedures for filing petitions for modification. II. Petitions for Modification Docket Number: M–2014–015–C. Petitioner: Luminant Mining Company, P.O. Box 1359, Tatum, Texas 75691. Mine: Liberty Strip Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 41–04964, located in Rusk County, Texas. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 77.803 (Fail safe ground check circuits on highvoltage resistance grounded systems). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit an alternative method of compliance when the boom/ mast is raised or lowered during necessary repairs. The petitioner states that: (1) Some stages of assembly/ disassembly of draglines require special consideration when the boom/mast is raising/lowering into position. (2) The boom is raised/lowered utilizing the on-board motor generator sets. This process is critical because during this time, power to the machine, as much as possible, must not be interrupted. Power loss may result in the boom becoming uncontrolled and falling, and could injure workers. To address this condition, the petitioner proposes to use the following guidelines to help prevent loss of power to the machine. This procedure only addresses raising/lowering the boom of draglines utilizing the machine’s electrical onboard motor generator sets. It does not replace other mechanical precautions or the requirements of 30 CFR 77.405(b) that are necessary to safely secure booms/masts during PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30169 construction or maintenance procedures. (3) The operator/contractor will develop and implement written procedures that will: (a) Limit the number of persons needed on board the machine during the boom/mast raising/lowering. Only those persons critical to performing necessary functions will be permitted on board the machine. (b) Explain the methods to be used to prevent off-board persons from contacting the frame cable of the machine. The area around the machine will be roped off or guarded. (c) Prohibit other work activities in close proximity to the machine during the boom/mast operation. (d) Establish a responsible person(s) at the work site who is familiar with all the requirements and is able to communicate at all times with the qualified person(s) at the substation. The responsible person(s) must remain at the work site during the boom/mast raising/lowering. (e) Ensure that all persons involved with the boom/mast raising/lowering are familiar with the safety precautions. (4) An MSHA-qualified electrician will complete an examination of all electrical components that will be energized during the boom raising/ lowering process. The examination will be done within 2 hours prior to the boom raising/lowering process. A record of the examination will be made available for review. The machine will be deenergized to perform this examination. (5) After the examination has been completed, electrical components necessary to complete the boom raising/ lowering process will be energized to assure they are operating properly as determined by the MSHA-qualified electrician. (6) The ground fault and ground check circuits may be disabled provided: (a) The internal ground conductor of the trailing cable has been tested and is continuous from the frame of the dragline to the grounding resistor located at the substation. Utilizing the ground check circuit and disconnecting the pilot circuit and the machine frame and verifying the circuit breaker cannot be closed will be an acceptable test. Resistance measurements can also be used to assure the ground conductor is continuous. The grounding resistor will be tested to assure it is properly connected and is not open or shorted; (b) Normal short circuit protection will be provided at all times. The overcurrent relay setting may be E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1

Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, a Subsidiary of Ocwen Financial 
Corporation, Including Former Workers of GMAC Mortgage, LLC, an 
Indirect Subsidiary of Residential Capital, LLC, Waterloo, Iowa; Notice 
of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    On its own action, the Department reviewed the determination for 
GMAC Mortgage, LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Residential Capital, LLC, 
now Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, a subsidiary of Ocwen Financial 
Corporation, Waterloo, Iowa to clarify the worker group. Based on 
additional and updated information, worker group is clarified as Ocwen 
Loan Servicing, LLC, a subsidiary of Ocwen Financial Corporation, 
including former workers of GMAC Mortgage, LLC, an indirect subsidiary 
of Residential Capital, LLC, Waterloo, Iowa (hereafter referred to as 
``Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC'' or ``the subject firm''). The workers are 
engaged in activities related to the supply of mortgage loan services.
    The worker group excludes workers totally or partially separated 
(or threatened with such separation) from the subject firm prior to 
February 15, 2013 (date of bankruptcy finalization).
    Based on a careful review and clarification of previously-submitted 
information and additional information obtained during the 
reconsideration investigation, the Department determines that Section 
222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or proportion of 
the workers in Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially 
separated and that Section 222(a)(2)(B) has been met because the 
workers' firm has shifted to a foreign country a portion of the supply 
of services like or directly competitive with the mortgage loan 
services supplied by the subject worker group, which contributed 
importantly to worker group separations at Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC.

Conclusion

    After careful review of previously-submitted facts and the 
additional facts obtained during the reconsideration investigation, I 
determine that workers Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, a subsidiary of Ocwen 
Financial Corporation, including former workers of GMAC Mortgage, LLC, 
an indirect subsidiary of Residential Capital, LLC, Waterloo, Iowa, who 
were engaged in employment related to the supply of mortgage loan 
services, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 
222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of 
the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I make the following certification:

    All workers of Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, a subsidiary of Ocwen 
Financial Corporation, including former workers of GMAC Mortgage, 
LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Residential Capital, LLC, Waterloo, 
Iowa, who became totally or partially separated from employment on 
or after February 15, 2013, through two years from the date of this 
certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or 
partial separation from employment on date of certification through 
two years from the date of certification, are eligible to apply for 
adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act 
of 1974, as amended.
