[TA-W-73,488]


Hewlett Packard (HP), Global Product Development, Engineering 
Workstation Refresh Team, Working On-Site at General Motors 
Corporation, Milford, MI; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reconsideration

    On June 8, 2010, the Department issued a Notice of Termination of 
Investigation, stating that the petitioning worker group is part of an 
on-going investigation (TA-W-72,851). On June 30, 2010, the Department 
issued a Notice of Revised Termination of

[[Page 10404]]

Investigation because the certification of TA-W-72,851 (issued on June 
23, 2010) did not include workers of Hewlett Packard, and began an 
investigation to determine whether workers and former workers of 
Hewlett Packard, Global Product Development, working on-site at General 
Motors Corporation, Milford, Michigan, are eligible to apply for TAA.
    Information obtained by the Department revealed that Hewlett 
Packard's Global Product Development unit consists of three separately 
identifiable worker groups: The Non-Information Technology Business 
Development Team, the Engineering Application Support Team, and the 
Engineering Workstation Refresh Team.
    On February 2, 2011, the Department issued an amended certification 
of TA-W-72,851 that included workers of Hewlett Packard, Global Product 
Development, Non-Information Technology Business Development Team and 
Engineering Application Support Team, working on-site at General Motors 
Corporation, Milford, Michigan. Because workers of Hewlett Packard, 
Global Product Development, Engineering Workstation Refresh Team (HP-
EWRT) are not covered by the amendment, the Department continued with 
the investigation.
    The Department has determined that the workers of HP-EWRT, who are 
engaged in employment related to the supply of information technology 
(IT) services, meet the criteria as Suppliers for secondary worker 
certification.
    Criterion I has been met because a significant number or proportion 
of the workers of HP-EWRT has become totally or partially separated, or 
are threatened with separation.
    Criterion II has been met because workers of HP-EWRT supplied 
services to a firm that employed a worker group eligible to apply for 
TAA and the services supplied are related to the article or service 
that was the basis for the TAA certification.
    Criterion III has been met because the loss of business by HP-EWRT 
with the aforementioned firm, with respect to IT services supplied to 
the firm, contributed importantly to subject worker separations at HP-
EWRT, Milford, Michigan.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of Hewlett Packard, Global 
Product Development, Engineering Workstation Refresh Team, Milford, 
Michigan, who are engaged in employment related to the supply of 
information technology (IT) services, meet the worker group 
certification criteria under Section 222(c) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 
2272(c). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I 
make the following certification:

    ``All workers of Hewlett Packard, Global Product Development, 
Engineering Workstation Refresh Team, working on-site at General 
Motors Corporation, Milford, Michigan, who became totally or 
partially separated from employment on or after February 9, 2009, 
through two years from the date of this revised 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.''

    Signed in Washington, DC, this 4th day of February, 2011.

Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
