 STEELWORKERS WELCOME CHANGE IN RAC MANAGEMENT;
 READY TO NEGOTIATE END TO LABOR DISPUTE
 PITTSBURGH, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Steelworkers of America (USW) today welcomed the change in management at Ravenswood Aluminum Corp. (RAC) and said it was ready to resume negotiations to end a lockout that has kept 1,700 USW members off the job for nearly 18 months.
 George Becker, USW vice president-administration, commenting on the removal of R. Emmett Boyle as RAC's chairman and chief operating officer, said, "The new management of Ravenswood Aluminum has stated clearly that it would like to bring the labor dispute to an end."
 Becker declared, "The company has taken the first step in that direction with the ouster of Mr. Boyle, who had been the largest obstacle to a settlement. The union is ready to negotiate in the near future to work toward a mutually satisfactory agreement, and to secure the prompt return of our locked-out members to their jobs."
 Becker met here this morning with Pete Nash, who has been hired by RAC to lay the groundwork for the start of negotiations, in what was described as a get-acquainted session. Nash was general counsel for the National Labor Relations Board under former President Nixon.
