The subject firm is engaged in activities related to the production of capacitors. The subject worker group does not include on-site leased workers. Workers of the subject firm were previously certified eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance under TA–W– 85,071 (certification expired on May 29, 2016). Based on new information provided during the reconsideration investigation, the Department determines that the worker group at GEFort Edward has met the worker group eligibility criteria set forth in the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:06 Jan 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or proportion of the workers in GE-Fort Edward 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 production of capacitors like or directly competitive with those produced by the workers which contributed importantly to worker group separations at GE-Fort Edward. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I determine that workers of GE-Fort Edward, who were engaged in employment related to production of capacitors, 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 General Electric Company, d/b/a GE Capacitor and Power Quality Products, Energy Connections Division, Fort Edward, New York, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after May 30, 2016, 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. 1361 Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 5, 2016 applicable to workers and former workers of CompuCom Systems, Inc., Dallas Service Desk, Dallas, Texas (TA–W–91,920) (herein referred to as ‘‘CompuCom Systems, Inc., Dallas Service Desk’’). The workers’ firm is engaged in activities related to the supply of information technology services, specifically the workers are engaged in technical support services for CompuCom clients. The State of Texas has informed the Department that the Dallas Service Desk relocated to Plano, Texas on August 5, 2016. It is the Department’s intent to accurately reflect the worker group eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance. Consequently, the amended notice applicable to TA–W–91,290 is hereby issued as follows: ‘‘All workers of CompuCom Systems, Inc., Dallas Service Desk, Dallas, Texas (TA–W– 91,920), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after June 14, 2015 through August 4, 2016, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended’’ and ‘‘All workers of CompuCom Systems, Inc., Dallas Service Desk, Plano, Texas (TA–W– 91,920A), who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 5, 2016 through August 5, 2018, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on August 5, 2016 through August 5, 2018, 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 31st day of October 2016.
