General Tire & Rubber Co., Mayfield, KY; Notice of Negative 
Determination On Reconsideration

    On June 24, 1994, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for workers and 
former worker of the subject firm. The union submitted the names of 
additional customers. The notice was published in the Federal Register 
on July 6, 1994 (59 FR 34653).
    The Department's initial denial was based on the fact that the 
``contributed importantly'' test of the Group Eligibility Requirements 
of the Trade Act was not met. This test is generally demonstrated 
through a survey of the workers' firm's declining customers. The 
Department's survey showed that none of the respondents reported 
increased purchases of imported tires during the relevant period to the 
    The investigation findings show that only three major customers 
with declining purchases were serviced out of the Mayfield plant in 
1993. None of these had increased purchases of imported tires in the 
relevant period.
    On reconsideration, the company submitted sales data for the list 
of customers submitted by the union. Most of the additional customers 
had increased purchases of tires from General Tire in 1993 compared to 
1992. The one customer with declining purchases of tires from the 
subject firm was included in the Department's initial survey and was 
found to have decreasing import purchases, as well, in 1993 compared to 
    Further findings on reconsideration show declining company imports 
in 1993 compared to 1992.
    The fact that the Mayfield workers were certified for TAA earlier 
under petition TA-W-24,573 would not provide a basis for a 
certification in a later time period. Each petition is investigated on 
its own merits and in the period in which it was filed.


    After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative 
determination of eligibility to apply for adjustment assistance to 
workers and former workers of General Tire, Inc., in Mayfield, 

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 15th day of July 1994.
