 U.S. HOUSE COMMITTEE TO CONTINUE HEARINGS ON MARC RICH TUESDAY;
 USW BRIEFS MEDIA TODAY AT 2 P.M. IN BAL HARBOUR, FLA.
 The United Steelworkers of America (USW) confirmed today that the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Government Operations will continue its investigation of metals contracts let by the U.S. Mint to Clarendon, Ltd., at a hearing Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 10 a.m. in room 2247 of the Rayburn House Office building in Washington.
 The USW said Clarendon is partially owned and controlled by Marc Rich, a fugitive from U.S. justice. The union said the subcommittee, chaired by U.S. Rep. Bob Wise (D-W.Va.), has been attempting to determine why the U.S. Mint, an agency of the U.S. government, has continued to do millions of dollars worth of business with Rich and his companies. The USW said Rich fled the United States in 1983 to avoid indictments for tax fraud, racketeering, and trading with the enemy.
 The USW will hold a press briefing today (Feb. 17) at 2 p.m. in the briefing room of the Sheraton Bal Harbour hotel to discuss Rich and his controlling interest in the Ravenswood Aluminum Corporation (RAC) in Ravenswood, W.Va. The union said RAC has locked out 1,700 members of the USW since Nov. 1, 1990.
 USW International President Lynn R. Williams and International Vice President George Becker will be at the briefing. Joe Uehlein, director of special projects for the AFL-CIO Industrial Union Department, will also be there.
 CONTACT: Gary Hubbard of the USW, at AFL-CIO Executive Council meeting, 305-868-2581.
