DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–85,373] GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization Atlanta, Georgia: Notice of Revised Determination After Statutory Reconsideration As required by the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2015 (TAARA 2015), which was enacted as Title IV of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114– 27, section 405(a)(1)(A), the investigation into this petition was reopened for a reconsideration investigation to apply the requirements for worker group eligibility under chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended by the TAARA 2015, to the facts of this petition (statutory reconsideration). The initial investigation, initiated June 12, 2014, resulted in a negative determination, issued on September 30, 2014, that was based on worker separations not being attributable to increased imports or a shift in production. A complaint was filed with the United States Court of International Trade (USCIT) on November 28, 2014 (No. 14–00314); however, a joint dismissal of the case was filed on July 20, 2015. During the Remand investigation, the worker group was clarified to be GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia (hereafter referred to as ‘‘GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization’’). The workers’ firm is engaged in activities related to the supply of designing, testing, documenting, and engineering services. ‘‘Firm includes an individual proprietorship, partnership, joint venture, association, corporation (including a development corporation), business trust, cooperative, trustee in bankruptcy, and receiver under decree of any court.’’ 29 CFR 90.2 Based on information reviewed during the reconsideration investigation, the Department of Labor determines that a shift in services to a E:\FR\FM\04AUN1.SGM 04AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 150 / Thursday, August 4, 2016 / Notices foreign country contributed importantly to the worker group separations at GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia. Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or proportion of the workers in GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated. 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 services supplied by the subject workers which contributed importantly to worker group separations at GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia. Conclusion After careful review, I determine that workers of GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia, who are engaged in activities related to the internal supply of designing, testing, documenting, and engineering 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: (Department) received a request for administrative reconsideration of the Department’s Notice of Termination of Investigation regarding workers’ eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was issued on November 13, 2015. The determination was based on the Department’s finding that the petitioning workers are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under an existing certification. In the request for reconsideration, the State of Texas stated that the workers who filed the petition are not part of the certified worker group at 8801 Fallbrook Drive, Houston, Texas but are part of a separately identifiable worker group at 8807 Fallbrook Drive, Houston, Texas. 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 reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. All workers of GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after June 11, 2013, through two years from the date of certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the 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.

GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization Atlanta, 
Georgia: Notice of Revised Determination After Statutory 
Reconsideration

    As required by the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reauthorization Act 
of 2015 (TAARA 2015), which was enacted as Title IV of the Trade 
Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114-27, section 
405(a)(1)(A), the investigation into this petition was reopened for a 
reconsideration investigation to apply the requirements for worker 
group eligibility under chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, 
as amended by the TAARA 2015, to the facts of this petition (statutory 
reconsideration).
    The initial investigation, initiated June 12, 2014, resulted in a 
negative determination, issued on September 30, 2014, that was based on 
worker separations not being attributable to increased imports or a 
shift in production. A complaint was filed with the United States Court 
of International Trade (USCIT) on November 28, 2014 (No. 14-00314); 
however, a joint dismissal of the case was filed on July 20, 2015. 
During the Remand investigation, the worker group was clarified to be 
GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, 
Georgia (hereafter referred to as ``GE Industrial Solutions Service 
Engineering Organization''). The workers' firm is engaged in activities 
related to the supply of designing, testing, documenting, and 
engineering services.
    ``Firm includes an individual proprietorship, partnership, joint 
venture, association, corporation (including a development 
corporation), business trust, cooperative, trustee in bankruptcy, and 
receiver under decree of any court.'' 29 CFR 90.2
    Based on information reviewed during the reconsideration 
investigation, the Department of Labor determines that a shift in 
services to a

[[Page 51497]]

foreign country contributed importantly to the worker group separations 
at GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, 
Georgia.
    Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or 
proportion of the workers in GE Industrial Solutions Service 
Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially 
separated.
    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 services supplied by the subject 
workers which contributed importantly to worker group separations at GE 
Industrial Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, 
Georgia.

Conclusion

    After careful review, I determine that workers of GE Industrial 
Solutions Service Engineering Organization, Atlanta, Georgia, who are 
engaged in activities related to the internal supply of designing, 
testing, documenting, and engineering 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 GE Industrial Solutions Service Engineering 
Organization, Atlanta, Georgia, who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after June 11, 2013, through two 
years from the date of certification, and all workers in the group 
threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the 
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.

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 20th day of May, 2016.
