USWA: UNION AND MOONLIGHT HOLD FIRST FACE-TO-FACE DISCUSSION

 PITTSBURGH, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- George F. Becker, international vice president for administration of the United Steelworkers of America (USWA), and Dennis Zensen, chairman of the parent company of Moonlight Mushrooms Inc., met in Atlanta Thursday (Nov. 18), the USWA announced today.
 The session between Becker and Zensen was the first face-to-face meeting involving the union and top company officials in the long dispute over contract concessions being demanded by Moonlight Mushrooms from the 1,000 members of USWA Local 8025 at the company's Worthington, Pa., mushroom farm, the union said.
 At the Atlanta meeting, Becker and Zensen:
 Explored the company's financial condition, and, in light of the shutdown that is in progress, whether -- from the company's point of view -- it makes sense at this late date to try to figure out what can be done to save the company, the union said.
 "The union is absolutely determined to make every effort it can to save this operation and its jobs," Becker said today. "Armstrong County and our members simply cannot afford to lose 1,000 jobs in today's economic climate."
