 CATERPILLAR ADVISED BY THE FMCS THAT
 UAW IS MAKING UNCONDITIONAL OFFER TO RETURN TO WORK
 PEORIA, Ill., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Caterpillar Inc. today said it has been advised by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) and the United Auto Workers that the union is making an unconditional offer to return to work, thereby ending its strike.
 Caterpillar welcomes the return of its employees under the terms of its final offer as implemented on April 6, and will accept their offers to return to work as promptly as possible.
 "This development is good for our employees, good for Caterpillar, and good for the communities in which we live and work," said Group President Jerry Flaherty. "We're pleased that our employees are coming back to work under an offer that is fair and will allow Caterpillar to remain globally competitive."
 Due to the time needed to further assess the company's manpower needs and to resume orderly operations at its facilities, Caterpillar said that:
 -- Employees who were on strike Tuesday should return to work
 only when notified by their facility management.
 -- UAW-represented employees who were working Tuesday should
 report to work on first shift Wednesday.
 -- Management and salaried employees should report to work
 Wednesday at the location where they worked on Tuesday.
 -- Striking employees who have not been notified to return to
 work will be asked to return home. The company expects to
 begin notifying striking employees as soon as possible to
 return to work.
 While Caterpillar has agreed to end its efforts to hire replacements, the company emphasized that it will continue to honor testing and interview commitments to job applicants who have been scheduled.
 Caterpillar and the UAW have agreed to continue negotiations under the auspices of the FMCS. No date has been set for the next meeting.
