Employment Plus and Manpower, Jefferson City, Missouri; Notice of 
Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    On April 8, 2014, the Department of Labor (Department) issued an 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration 
applicable to workers and former workers of Von Hoffman Corporation, a 
subsidiary of RR Donnelley & Sons Company, Jefferson City Plant, 
including on-site leased workers from Employment Plus and Manpower,

determination was published in the Federal Register on April 29, 2014

production of educational textbooks and commercial catalogues.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department carefully 
reviewed previously-submitted information, obtained additional 
information from the subject firm, and conducted an industry analysis 
of like or directly competitive articles.
    Previously-provided information reveals that a significant number 
or proportion of workers at the subject firm was separated and that 
sales and production at the subject firm declined.
    Based on new information obtained during the reconsideration 
investigation, the Department determines that increased imports of 
articles like or directly competitive with those produced by the 
subject firm contributed importantly to worker separations.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of the subject firm, who were 
engaged in employment related to production of textbooks and 
catalogues, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 
222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. Sec.  2272(a). In accordance with Section 
223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. Sec.  2273, I make the following 
certification:

    All workers of Von Hoffman Corporation, a subsidiary of RR 
Donnelley & Sons Company, Jefferson City Plant, including on-site 
leased workers from Employment Plus and Manpower, Jefferson City, 
Missouri, who became totally or partially separated from employment 
on or after December 26, 2012, 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.
