TYLER UNIT EMPLOYEES VOTE FOR UNION

 TYLER UNIT EMPLOYEES VOTE FOR UNION
 DALLAS, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyler Corporation (NYSE: TYL)


reported today that by majority vote certain employees at its Tyler Pipe Industries' unit have chosen to be represented by the United Rubber, Cork, Linoleum & Plastic Workers of America. Approximately 1,800 employees at Tyler Pipe's foundry in Tyler, Texas are affected.
 Joseph F. McKinney, chief executive officer of Tyler Corporation, commented, "We firmly believe that wages and benefits currently being paid at Tyler Pipe are fair and competitive in our industry. If the election results are certified by the National Labor Relations Board, we are prepared to negotiate in good faith, but the union must recognize that the course of negotiations will have to reflect the adverse business conditions facing Tyler Pipe.
 "In the event that a collective bargaining agreement is reached, it will not be a new experience for us," McKinney continued. Tyler Corporation has worked with unions at other points in its history and currently has union representation at Tyler Pipe's Pennsylvania facility.
 Tyler Pipe has its headquarters and largest foundry in Tyler, Texas and major plants in Macungie, Pa. and Marshfield, Mo. Approximately 160 employees at the Pennsylvania foundry are currently represented by the Glass, Molders, Pottery, Plastics & Allied Workers International Union.
 Tyler Corporation, with national headquarters in Dallas, provides cast iron pipe and fittings and automotive aftermarket parts.
