PHILADELPHIA COUNCIL OF NEWSPAPER UNIONS ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING TODAY'S PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER STORY

 PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Joseph Lyons, president of the Philadelphia Council of Newspaper Unions, said the headline and implication in today's story in The Philadelphia Inquirer about labor negotiations was inaccurate.
 "At no time has the Council of Unions discussed an extension of its 14 contracts with representatives of Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc. The Inquirer's headline falsely states that both sides were talking about an extension," he said.
 The contracts of 10 unions representing more than 3,000 employees at PNI -- drivers, pressmen, reporters, photographers, advertising sales representatives, circulation, business department and other employees -- expire on Aug. 31 at midnight.
