BOBLO NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUE, LAYOFF DEADLINE EXTENDED

 WYANDOTTE, Mich., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- After continuous negotiations with Canadian regulatory agencies, Boblo Island has been unable to reach a final agreement with the Canadian Coast Guard. However, Boblo will extend the deadline for closing the island and withdraw 860 layoff notices that were to take effect at 11 a.m. today, Thursday, Aug. 5.
 Boblo reached a settlement with Employment & Immigration Canada and National Transportation Authority, but the Canadian Coast Guard refused to grant Boblo permission to use Boblo's U.S. ships from the Boblo dock in Amherstburg, Ontario, during special events.
 "Boblo Island management has made substantial progress with the Canadian Coast Guard, but one outstanding matter is yet to be resolved," said Remo Mancini, Boblo's Canadian president. "We will continue to make every effort to reach a fair and practical solution, however, if no agreement is concluded with the Canadian Coast Guard, all Boblo Island employees will be laid off and the park closed effective 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6, 1993," Mancini said.
 "Boblo Island management is prepared to do anything within its means to prevent the layoffs and closure," Mancini added. "Negotiations will continue to the very end if necessary."
