 LUKENS SHIPS 11,500 TONS OF STEEL DURING HOLIDAY WEEK
 COATESVILLE, Pa., Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Lukens Steel Co. shipped


more than 11,500 tons of plate steel during the week of Dec. 22, despite a two-day plant shutdown for the Christmas holiday, the company said today.
 Last week's efforts pushed total shipments past the 130,000-ton mark since the steelworkers' strike began Oct. 1.
 "Our ability to continue to produce and ship our products to satisfy our customers' requirements throughout the strike has been a remarkable achievement. The strike will not deter us from meeting our obligation toward our customers," said Lukens Steel President Robert Schaal.
 Counting work completed last week, Lukens' Electric Melt Shop has produced more than 100,000 tons of new steel since Oct. 1, said Schaal as the strike moved into the 14th week. The company received new orders for about 7,000 tons of steel during the week beginning Dec. 22.
 Lukens Steel negotiators met with union representatives today to discuss the contract proposal offered by Lukens on Dec. 21. Although that offer was to expire today, negotiations are expected to continue later this week.
 "We remain willing to negotiate even past the December 31 deadline," Schaal said. "We will extend our offer to achieve a new contract."
