Honeywell, Aerospace Division; Including On-Site Leased Workers 
From OptiScan, Tempe, Arizona; Notice of Affirmative Determination 
Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated January 28, 2015, a worker requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding 
workers' eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance 
applicable to workers and former workers of Honeywell, Aerospace 
Division, including on-site leased workers from OptiScan, Tempe, 
Arizona (Honeywell). The determination was issued on December 9, 2014 
and the Department of Labor's Notice of Determination was published in 
the Federal Register on December 30, 2014 (79 FR 78496).
    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 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of 
the decision.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the findings that with respect to Section 222(a) and Section 
222(b) of the Act, Criterion (1) had not been met because a significant 
number or proportion of the workers in such workers' firm had not 
become totally or partially separated, nor were they threatened to 
become totally or partially separated.
    The request for reconsideration asserts that the subject worker 
group was defined too broadly and therefore failed to capture the 
worker separations and trade impact experienced by the specific workers 
of OptiScan who were employed on-site at Honeywell, Aerospace Division, 
Tempe, Arizona; that numerous firms which supplied the subject firm 
with on-site leased workers were erroneously combined together for the 
purpose of reaching a determination as a single firm, yet they were not 
all in support of the manufacturing process at the subject firm; that 
the employment decline criterion was met for the OptiScan workers 
employed on-site at Honeywell, Aerospace Division, Tempe, Arizona; and 
that the data management services they supplied in support of the 
engineering group were shifted to a foreign country.
    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the 
Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the 
workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify

[[Page 15825]]

reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor's prior decision. The 
application is, therefore, granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 10th day of March, 2015.
