 CARPENTERS UNION, AFL-CIO TO RELEASE STUDY CHARGING MAJOR
 UNDERESTIMATE BY FOREST SERVICE OF JOB LOSSES FROM SPOTTED OWL
 PROTECTION PLAN
 10:30 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 13
 Carpenters' Building
 101 Constitution Ave. N.W., Washington
 The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBCJA) and the AFL-CIO will release a study on Feb. 13 conducted by independent academic experts, refuting projected timber industry job loss figures released recently by the U.S. Forest Service.
 The Forest Service claimed in January, in its final environmental analysis of a plan to protect the spotted owl, that 20,700 jobs would be lost in the Northwest. A study conducted by academic experts will demonstrate that the jobs impact of changes in Forest Service management policy will be far greater.
 Participating in the press conference will be:
 -- Denny Scott, UBCJA staff economist
 -- Jay Power, AFL-CIO legislative representative
 -- Mark Roberts, AFL-CIO research staff
 Other invited participants include:
 -- Prof. Wilbur Maki, study co-author, University of Minnesota
 -- Douglas Olson, study co-author, University of Minnesota
 -- Prof. Keith Gillis, University of California
 -- Prof. Robert Lee, University of Washington
 -- Mark Rasmussen, Timber Data, Inc.
 CONTACT: Denny Scott, 202-546-6206, or Robin Shapiro, 202-452-9462, both for the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.
