 LTV, UAW NEGOTIATORS RECEIVE NATIONAL FMCS HONOR
 DALLAS, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- LTV Aerospace and Defense and


Local 848 of the United Auto Workers Union were honored last evening with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service's Award for Excellence in Collective Bargaining.
 The award recognizes the innovative bargaining between LTV and the UAW local during recent contract negotiations, completed March 1, 1992. FMCS Director Bernard E. DeLury presented the award during ceremonies in Dallas.
 Jerry Carr, vice president for human resources for LTV Aerospace and Defense's Aircraft Division, described the problem solving approach as "a useful, non-adversarial process which drew on the best resources of both sides."
 "The union and the company were willing to use this innovative process which had everyone at the table working together on joint solutions for difficult issues. FMCS mediators John Courtney and Dale Johnson assisted us a great deal in recommending the use of win- win bargaining," said Carr.
 Carroll Butler, president of UAW Local 848, added: "We are proud to be a joint recipient of this award. Our bargaining efforts using this approach resulted in a good contract for both our members and for the company's long-term health."
 DeLury said that the service was recommending these joint problem solving approaches "whenever labor and management are willing to join resources in dealing with current complex issues."
 The FMCS awards are granted by DeLury in situations where labor and management have used collective bargaining processes in a manner worthy of national attention.
