NATIONAL-STANDARD ANNOUNCES STRIKE AT ALABAMA PLANT

 NILES, Mich., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- National-Standard Company (NYSE: NSD) today announced that its union-represented employees at its Columbiana, Ala., plant have gone on strike on June 1, 1993, at the expiration of the labor contract. The company's last proposal was not accepted by members of United Steelworkers Union Local No. 15015. Approximately 200 employees are involved in the work stoppage.
 Limited production will continue with the supervisory and office personnel at the plant. No further meetings with the union have yet been scheduled.
 The company also reported that its Corbin, Ky., union-represented employees returned to work on May 24 under the terms of the previously expired collective bargaining agreement, which agreement was extended to June 30, 1993. It is anticipated that renewed negotiation sessions there will result in a new labor agreement in the near term.
