Levi Strauss & Co., Eugene, Oregon; Notice of Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated on February 6, 2015, a state workforce 
official requested administrative reconsideration of the negative 
determination regarding workers' eligibility to apply for worker 
adjustment assistance applicable to workers and former workers of Levi 
Strauss & Company, Eugene, Oregon. The determination was issued on 
January 14, 2015 and the Notice of Determination was published in the 
Federal Register on February 18, 2015 (80 FR 8692).
    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 worker separations at Levi Strauss & Co., 
Eugene, Oregon are not attributable to increased imports of articles or 
a shift in production of articles to a foreign country.
    The request for reconsideration asserts that although the workers 
are engaged in service-related activities, the workers perform 
production forecasting activities and order management support of Levi 
Strauss' production of clothing and apparel. The reconsideration 
application concludes that both activities drive production and has 
been shifted to a foreign country.
    The Department of Labor 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.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.
