General Motors Company, Pontiac Assembly; Pontiac, MI; Notice of 
Negative Determination on Reconsideration

    On October 7, 2010, the Department of Labor (Department) issued an 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for 
the workers and former workers of General Motors Company, Pontiac 
Assembly, Pontiac, Michigan (GM-Pontiac). The Department's Notice of 
determination was published in the Federal Register on October 25, 2010 
(75 FR 65513). Workers at GM-Pontiac are engaged in employment related 
to the production of the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado vehicles.
    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 mis-
interpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the 
decision.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the finding that there was no increase in imports by the 
subject firm or its 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 both employed workers eligible to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance and directly incorporated the component parts 
into the article that was the basis for the TAA certification.
    In the request for reconsideration, the International Union of 
United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers of 
America (UAW) stated that production of standard cab and extended cab 
GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado vehicles shifted to an affiliated GM 
facility in Mexico (``Pontiac Assembly ceased producing * * * 
production from Pontiac * * * shifted, at least in part, to Silao, 
Mexico.''
    Information obtained during the reconsideration investigation 
confirmed that the subject firm did not shift to/acquire from an 
affiliated facility in Mexico or any other foreign country the 
production of standard cab and extended cab GMC Sierra and Chevrolet 
Silverado vehicles (or like or directly competitive articles). The 
company official also confirmed that production of the aforementioned 
vehicles was shifted to affiliated locations within the United States.

Conclusion

    After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative 
determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance 
for workers and former workers of General Motors, Pontiac Assembly, 
Pontiac, Michigan.

    Signed in Washington, DC, on this 4th day of February, 2011.
Del Min Amy Chen,
Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
