[TA-W-72,554]

 
General Motors Company, Pontiac Company, Pontiac, MI; Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated June 11, 2010, a representative of the 
International Union of United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural 
Implement Workers of America (UAW) requested administrative 
reconsideration of the negative determination 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 April 12, 2010 and the Notice of Determination was 
published in the Federal Register on May 20, 2010 (75 FR 28301). The 
workers produce the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado.
    The negative determination was based on the findings that there was 
no increase in imports by the firm or customers or a shift to/
acquisition from a foreign country by the workers' firm of articles 
like or directly competitive with the automobiles produced by the 
workers. The investigation also revealed that the workers did not 
produce a component part that was used by a firm that employed workers 
eligible to apply for TAA and that directly incorporated the component 
parts into the article that was the basis for the TAA certification.
    The UAW's request for reconsideration states that production of 
standard cab and extended cab GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado 
vehicles shifted to an affiliated facility in Mexico. The request for 
reconsideration also includes new information in support of the 
allegation.
    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.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 7th day of October 2010.
Del Min Amy Chen,
Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
