UAW RESPONDS TO MINIVAN DECISION

 UAW RESPONDS TO MINIVAN DECISION
 DETROIT, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- UAW President Owen Bieber released


the following statement in response to today's decision by the International Trade Commission rejecting the minivan anti-dumping petition filed by the Big Three automakers:
 "The UAW is shocked and dismayed that the International Trade Commission failed to recognize the injury to the domestic auto industry and its workers caused by the dumping of minivans in the U.S. by Toyota and Mazda. Auto and parts workers have seen the number of jobs in the industry shrink as imports increased, and we had hoped for relief by the implementation of U.S. trade laws to address unfair competition.
 "The imposition of penalty duties that should have resulted from this complaint, while by no means a cure for what ails the U.S. auto industry, would at least have provided a modest defense against unfair international competition.
 "The ITC ruling underscores the need for the Bush Administration to deal with the nation's trade and jobs crisis. American auto workers are tired of waiting for the government to respond to the depressed state of the industry and local economies. The time for action is now and if the Bush Administration continues its failure to act, the voters should remember in November."
