Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility
 To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance 

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor 
issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance on August 8, 2017, applicable to workers 
of The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), 
including on-site leased workers from American Cybersystems 
Inc., Apollo Professional Solutions Inc., Aquent LLC, Artech 
Information Systems LLC, Ateeca Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton 
Ross Inc. (Nevada), Collabera Inc., CTS International Inc., 
Iconma LLC, Moseley Technical Services Inc., PDS Technical 
Services, Searchpros Solutions, Strom Aviation Inc., Triad 
Systems International, US Tech Solutions Inc., Verify Inc., Volt 
Services Inc. and Yoh Services LLC, working in multiple cities 
throughout Washington State (TA-W-92,903) and The Boeing 
Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), including on-site 
leased workers from Apollo Professional Solutions Inc., Aquent 
LLC, Ateeca Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton Ross Inc. 
(Nevada), PDS Technical Services, Searchpros Solutions and 
Triad Systems International, Portland, Oregon (TA-W-92,903A). 
The workers were engaged in commercial aircraft (specifically 
737, 747, 767, 777, and 787 airplanes), including manufacturing, 
quality control, component part manufacturing, installation, 
assembly, finishing, and related support services.
      At the request of a state workforce representative, the 
Department reviewed the certification for workers eligible to 
apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance under TA-W-92,903.  
      New information shows that workers leased from Altair were 
employed on-site at The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial 
Aircraft (BCA), working in multiple cities throughout Washington 
State (TA-W-92,903). The Department has determined that these 
workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm 
to be considered leased workers. 
     Based on these findings, the Department is amending the 
certification of TA-W-92,903 to include workers leased from 
Altair working on-site at The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial 
Aircraft (BCA), working in multiple cities throughout Washington 
State (TA-W-92,903). The amended notice applicable to TA-W-
92,903 is hereby issued as follows:
"All workers of The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial 
Aircraft (BCA), including on-site leased workers from 
American Cybersystems Inc., Apollo Professional 
Solutions Inc., Aquent LLC, Artech Information Systems 
LLC, Ateeca Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton Ross Inc.

Solutions Inc., Verify Inc., Volt Services Inc., Yoh 
Services LLC,  and Altair, working in multiple cities 
throughout Washington State (TA-W-92,903), who became 
totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after August 7, 2017, through August 8, 2019, and all 
workers in the group threatened with total or partial 
separation from employment on the 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.”

Certification Regarding Eligibility
To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended ("Act"), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor 
herein presents the results of an investigation regarding 
certification of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance.
      The group eligibility requirements for workers of a firm 
under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a), are 
satisfied if the following criteria are met:
	(1)	 a significant number or proportion of the 
workers in such workers' firm have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become 
totally or partially separated;
	(2)(B)(i)(I)	there has been a shift by the workers' 
firm to a foreign country in the production of 
articles or supply of services like or directly 
competitive with those produced/supplied by the 
workers' firm; OR
	         (II)	there has been an acquisition from a 
	         foreign country by the workers' firm of 
              articles/services that are like or directly
              competitive with those produced/supplied by 
              the workers' firm; AND
(ii)	the shift/acquisition must have contributed 
importantly to the workers' separation or 
threat of separation.  
  
      The investigation was initiated in response to a petition 
filed on May 22, 2017 by the representatives of International 
Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers (IAMAW), 
District Lodge 751 and District Lodge W24, on behalf of workers 
of The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), 
including on-site leased workers from American Cybersystems 
Inc., Apollo Professional Solutions Inc., Aquent LLC, Artech 
Information Systems LLC, Ateeca Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton 
Ross Inc. (Nevada), Collabera Inc., CTS International Inc., 
Iconma LLC, Moseley Technical Services Inc., PDS Technical 
Services, Searchpros Solutions, Strom Aviation Inc., Triad 
Systems International, US Tech Solutions Inc., Verify Inc., Volt 
Services Inc. and Yoh Services LLC, working in multiple cities 
throughout Washington State (TA-W-92,903), and The Boeing 
Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), including on-site 
leased workers from Apollo Professional Solutions Inc., Aquent 
LLC, Ateeca Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton Ross Inc. 
(Nevada), PDS Technical Services, Searchpros Solutions and 
Triad Systems International, Portland, Oregon (TA-W-
92,903A)(hereafter referred to collectively as "BCA-
Washington/Oregon").  Workers of BCA-Washington/Oregon are 
engaged in activities related to the production of commercial 
aircraft (specifically 737, 747, 767, 777, and 787  
airplanes), including manufacturing, quality control, 
component part manufacturing, installation, assembly, 
finishing, and related support services. Workers of BCA-
Washington/Oregon are organized by aircraft line but not 
separately identifiable by the article produced. 
      Workers of The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft 
(BCA), working in multiple cities throughout Washington State 
(TA-W-92,903) are eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment 
Assistance (TAA) under TA-W-86,001 and TA-w-86,001A.
      During the course of the investigation, information was 
collected from the workers' firm, the petitioners, and public 
sources. 
      Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant 
number or proportion of the workers in BCA-Washington/Oregon 
have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to 
become totally or partially separated.   
      Section 222(a)(2)(B) has been met because the workers' 
firm has shifted to a foreign country a portion of the 
production of a(n) article like or directly competitive with the 
commercial aircraft produced by the subject workers which 
contributed importantly to worker group separations at BCA-
Washington/Oregon.
Conclusion
	After careful review of the facts obtained in the 
investigation, I determine that workers of The Boeing Company, 
Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), working in multiple cities 
throughout Washington State (TA-W-92,903), and The Boeing 
Company, Boeing Commercial Aircraft (BCA), Portland, Oregon 
(TA-W-92,903A), who are engaged in activities related to the 
production of commercial aircraft, meet the worker group 
certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 
U.S.C. § 2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 
U.S.C. § 2273, I make the following certification:
"All workers of The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial 
Aircraft (BCA), including on-site leased workers from 
American Cybersystems Inc., Apollo Professional Solutions 
Inc., Aquent LLC, Artech Information Systems LLC, Ateeca 
Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton Ross Inc. (Nevada), 
Collabera Inc., CTS International Inc., Iconma LLC, Moseley 
Technical Services Inc., PDS Technical Services, Searchpros 
Solutions, Strom Aviation Inc., Triad Systems 
International, US Tech Solutions Inc., Verify Inc., Volt 
Services Inc. and Yoh Services LLC, working in multiple 
cities throughout Washington State (TA-W-92,903), who 
became totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after August 7, 2017 through two years from the date of 
certification, and The Boeing Company, Boeing Commercial 
Aircraft (BCA), including on-site leased workers from 
Apollo Professional Solutions Inc., Aquent LLC, Ateeca 
Inc., Chipton Ross Inc., Chipton Ross Inc. (Nevada), PDS 
Technical Services, Searchpros Solutions and Triad 
Systems International, Portland, Oregon (TA-W-92,903A), 
who became totally or partially separated from employment 
on or after May 19, 2016 through two years from the date 
of certification, and all workers in the group threatened 
with total or partial separation from employment on the 
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."
