CHIEF U.S. MEDIATOR CALLS PITTSBURGH PRESS, TEAMSTER TALKS TO WASHINGTON

 CHIEF U.S. MEDIATOR CALLS PITTSBURGH PRESS,
 TEAMSTER TALKS TO WASHINGTON
 WASHINGTON, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Bernard E. DeLury, director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, has asked principals in the negotiations between the Pittsburgh Press Company and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 211 to meet with him in Washington on Thursday, June 11.
 A work stoppage at the Pittsburgh Press which began on May 18, 1992, has also effectively shutdown the city's other daily newspaper, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, due to a cooperative production arrangement.
 Citing the very great impact on the community served by newspapers, DeLury said, "We rely so heavily on the daily newspaper to maintain the fragile social contact within our communities as well as with the outside world, and when that product is missing, the entire community suffers a loss of spirit and togetherness. The grave economic impact to the community at a time when many businesses and workers, which depend so heavily on daily newspapers, are living at the very edge of economic safety makes a city without newspapers intolerable and unacceptable."
 The decision to bring the negotiations to Washington was made after a continuing liaison with FMCS District and Local mediation staff indicated no improvement in the bargaining climate and no significant progress toward a solution. DeLury urged the parties to meet with him in Washington "in an effort to find common ground upon which a collective bargaining agreement can be reached."
 The meetings will take place at the national headquarters of FMCS at 2100 K St. N.W., Washington, and will commence at 1 p.m.
