IAM OFFICIALS WARNS UNION MAY STRIKE USAIR

 IAM OFFICIALS WARNS UNION MAY STRIKE USAIR
 MONTREAL, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- International Association of


Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Transportation Vice President John Peterpaul yesterday warned that the IAM might be forced to strike USAir by the end of next week.
 Speaking from Montreal, the site of the IAM's International Convention, Peterpaul said IAM District 141 is presently conducting contract ratification and strike votes at all USAir locations. The IAM is recommending members reject the company's concessionary demands and vote to strike.
 Peterpaul laid responsibility for the potential strike squarely on company negotiators. "USAir's final offer," Peterpaul said, "is a slap in the face to the IAM negotiators who bargained in earnest for more than two years.
 "Eleventh-hour bargaining traditionally leads to a contract in our industry. This time, however, USAir presented its worst offer to date, five minutes before the strike deadline. That action is tantamount to forcing a strike. However, the IAM traditionally takes USAir's final offer back to the members and they make the determination to strike.
 "We want them to see, first-hand, how the company wants to reward their years of dedication -- with permanent pay reductions and loss of work rules. No other employee group has been subjected to those kinds of demands."
 The IAM represents more than 8,000 mechanic and related employees at USAir.
