AUSTIN, TEXAS 

Notice of Termination of Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers 
and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance Investigation 

Pursuant to Section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an 
investigation was initiated in response to a Trade Adjustment 
Assistance for Workers (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment 
Assistance (ATAA) petition dated August 2, 2021 and filed on August

Austin, Texas. 

20 C.F.R. 618.210(e)(1) states that the Department of Labor may 
terminate an investigation if the investigation establishes one of 
the following: (i) The petition is invalid, which includes petitions 
identifying a nonexistent group of workers, filed under false 
pretenses, or perpetuating fraud; (ii) The petitioner has withdrawn 
the petition in writing; (iii) The group of workers identified in the 
investigation is the same as a group of workers identified in another 
pending investigation; (iv) The group of workers identified in the 
investigation already has been issued a denial, and the period of 
investigation applicable to the current investigation and the 
previous denial is the same; or (v) The group of workers identified in 
the investigation is already covered by a certification that does not 
expire within 90 calendar days of the determination. 

The petitioner has requested in writing in that the petition be 
withdrawn. Consequently, the investigation has been terminated. 

Signed in Washington, D.C., this 17th day of September, 2021
