    On October 7, 2010, the Department of Labor issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of the subject facilities. The workers are engaged 
in activities related to the supply of warehousing and distribution 
services related to automotive parts.
    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
    The negative determination was based on the findings that there was 
no increase in imports of services like or directly competitive with 
those supplied by the subject workers and no shift to/acquisition from 
a foreign country by the workers' firm in the supply of services like 
or directly competitive with those supplied by the subject workers.
    The request for reconsideration asserts that the workers are 
eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) as adversely-
affected secondary workers because they ``provide replacement and 
accessory parts for new vehicles'' and identified firms that employed 
worker groups eligible to apply for TAA.
    Section 222(d) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(d), defines the term 
``Supplier'' as ``a firm that produces and supplies directly to another 
firm component parts for articles, or services used in the production 
of articles or in the supply of services, as the case may be, that were 
the basis for a certification of eligibility under subsection (a) [of 
Section 222 of the Act] of a group of workers employed by such other 
firm.''

[[Page 27667]]

    Section 222(d) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(d), defines the term 
``Downstream Producer'' as ``a firm that performs additional, value-
added production processes or services directly for another firm for 
articles or services with respect to which a group of workers in such 
other firm has been certified under subsection (a) [of Section 222 of 
the Act]'' and defines the term ``value-added production processes or 
services'' to ``include final assembly, finishing, testing, packaging, 
or maintenance or transportation services.''
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department received 
information that confirmed that the subject facilities are not a 
``supplier'' or a ``downstream producer'' within the meaning of the 
Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
    The subject facilities do not produce and directly supply component 
parts (or services) to a firm that both employed a worker group 
eligible to apply for TAA and directly used the component parts (or 
services) in the production of the article or in the supply of the 
service that was the basis for the TAA certification, and do not 
perform downstream producer services for a firm that both employed a 
worker group eligible to apply for TAA and directly used the service in 
the production of the article or in the supply of the service that was 
the basis for the TAA certification.
    Rather, the subject facilities separate, consolidate and package 
finished parts that are produced by others, and ship the packages to 
Chrysler points of contacts, who then forward the packages to car 
dealerships who ordered the parts on behalf of the dealership's 
customers.

determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance
