DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

Employment and Training Administration
[NAFTA-01866]

 
Dana Corporation, Spicer Trailer Products, Berwick, Pennsylvania; 
Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    On October 10, 1997, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application on Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on October 24, 1997 (62 FR 55424).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
issued on September 4, 1997, because criteria (3) and (4) of paragraph 
(a)(1) of Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, were not 
met. There was no shift of production from the Berwick, Pennsylvania 
plant to Canada or Mexico, nor did Dana Corporation, or its major 
declining customers, increase import purchases of leaf springs.
    On reconsideration, the Department conducted further survey 
analysis of major customers of Dana Corporation, Spicer Trailer 
Products. The survey revealed that a former major customer reduced 
purchases of leaf springs from the Berwick plant and increased 
purchases from a firm which increased its imports from Mexico and 
Canada of leaf springs similar to the articles produced at the Berwick 
plant.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles from 
Mexico and Canada like or directly competitive with leaf springs, 
contributed importantly to the declines in sales or production and to 
the total or partial separation of workers of Dana Corporation, Spicer 
Trailer Products. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make 
the following certification:

    All workers of Dana Corporation, Spicer Trailer Products, 
Berwick, Pennsylvania who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after August 7, 1996 are eligible to apply for 
NAFTA-TAA under Section 250 of the Trade Act of 1974.

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 11th day of February 1998.
Grant D. Beale,
Acting Director, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
