TA-W-74,563

ALL AMERICAN SPORTS GROUP CORPORATION
INCLUDING ON-SITE LEASED WORKERS FROM
MANPOWER STAFFING SERVICES AND KELLY SERVICES
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

	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:
I.	The first criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(1) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a)(1)) requires that a significant 
number or proportion of the workers in the workers' firm 
must have become totally or partially separated or be 
threatened with total or partial separation.

II.	The second criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(2) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a)(2)) may be satisfied if either:

(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
(i)(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.

III.	The third criterion requires that the shift/acquisition 
must have contributed importantly to the workers' 
separation or threat of separation.  See Section 
222(a)(2)(B)(ii) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. §  
2272(a)(2)(B)(ii).
  
	The investigation was initiated in response to a petition 
filed on August 27, 2010 by a company official on behalf of 
workers of All American Sports Group Corporation, San Antonio, 
Texas (All American Sports Group).  The worker group includes 
on-site leased workers from Manpower Staffing Services and Kelly 
Services. The workers supply refurbishing services (disassembly, 
cleaning, refurbishing, and reassembly) for football helmets. 
      The investigation revealed that workers of All American 
Sports Group, who supply refurbishing services for football 
helmets, meet the criteria for certification.  
      Criterion I has been met because a significant proportion 
of the workers at All American Sports Group has been totally 
or partially separated during the relevant period and further 
separations are scheduled.  
      Criterion II has been met because All American Sports 
Group has shifted the supply of like or directly competitive 
services to a foreign country. 
      Criterion III has been met because the shift to Mexico 
contributed importantly to worker separations at All American 
Sports Group, San Antonio, Texas.


Conclusion
	After careful review of the facts obtained in the 
investigation, I determine that workers of All American Sports 
Group Corporation, including on-site leased workers from 
Manpower Staffing Services and Kelly Services, San Antonio, 
Texas, who supply refurbishing services, 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 All American Sports Group Corporation, 
including on-site leased workers from Manpower Staffing 
Services and Kelly Services, San Antonio, Texas, who 
became totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after August 20, 2009, through two years from the date of 


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, D.C., this 9th day of September, 2010
