The Department’s notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on May 24, 2016 (81 FR 32783). At the request of the company official of the workers’ firm, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in activities related to the production of fuel pumps. The company reports that workers leased from Entegee Engineering were employed on-site at the Logansport, Indiana location of Carter Fuel Systems, a subsidiary of Crowne Group LLC. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm to be considered leased workers. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers of the subject firm who were adversely affected by acquisition of fuel pumps or articles like or directly competitive from a foreign country. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers leased from Entegee Engineering working onsite at the Logansport, Indiana location of Carter Fuel Systems, a subsidiary of Crowne Group LLC. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:40 Sep 23, 2016 Jkt 238001 The amended notice applicable to TA–W–91,051 is hereby issued as follows: (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. All workers of Carter Fuel Systems, a subsidiary of Crowne Group LLC, including on-site leased workers from Aerotek, CrossFire Group, and Entegee Engineering, Logansport, Indiana who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after October 1, 2014 through April 24, 2018 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. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that that imports did not increase, and that the workers’ firm does not import machining and construction services. Further, the firm did not shift the supply of machining and construction services or like or directly competitive services to a foreign country or acquire machining and construction services or like or directly competitive services from a foreign country. Further, the firm is not a Supplier to a firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). The services supplied by the workers firm were not used in the production of an article, iron ore. Finally, the firm does not act as a Downstream Producer to a firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). The request for reconsideration asserts that this determination is erroneous and that the subject firm workers should be considered in production of mining. The request also included additional information relating to this statement. 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.

Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated May 2, 2016, the state workforce office 
requested administrative reconsideration of the negative determination 
regarding workers' eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance applicable to workers and former workers of Essar Steel 
Minnesota LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary Essar Global Fund Limited, 
including on-site leased workers from Express Employment Professionals,

Associates, Hibbing, Minnesota. The determination was issued on April 
8, 2016.
    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 that imports did not increase, and that the 
workers' firm does not import machining and construction services. 
Further, the firm did not shift the supply of machining and 
construction services or like or directly competitive services to a 
foreign country or acquire machining and construction services or like 
or directly competitive services from a foreign country. Further, the 
firm is not a Supplier to a firm that employed a group of workers who 
received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). The services supplied by the workers firm were 
not used in the production of an article, iron ore. Finally, the firm 
does not act as a Downstream Producer to a firm that employed a group 
of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 
222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a).

erroneous and that the subject firm workers should be considered in 
production of mining. The request also included additional information 
relating to this statement.
    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.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 8th day of August, 2016.
