McDONNELL DOUGLAS TO RECALL WORKERS IN TULSA

 ST. LOUIS, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Douglas today announced a combination of 68 recalls and or rehires and 33 layoffs at its plant in Tulsa, Okla., for a net increase of 35 positions.
 The 68 recall and or rehire notices will be issued this week to previously laid off workers because of an increase in wing subassembly work on the U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III military transport, as well as a slight build-up in subassembly tooling for the 72 F-15 Eagle aircraft ordered by Saudi Arabia.
 Of the 68 recalled or rehired workers, 62 are members of the United Auto Workers Local 1093, four are members of UAW Local 73 and two are salaried employees. Recalls will be completed by Aug. 14.
 Downturns in commercial aircraft production and the temporary gap between the last U.S. Air Force F-15s that have been ordered and the 72 Eagles recently procured by Saudi Arabia are responsible for the layoffs.
 Of the 33 people being laid off, 32 are members of UAW Local 1093 and one is a member of UAW Local 73. They will be notified Aug. 4, and their last day at work will Aug. 6. The 48-hour notice is in keeping with the collective bargaining agreements between the company and the unions representing those workers.
 Employment at the Tulsa plant will total approximately 1,240 after the recalls and layoffs announced today go into effect. Peak employment at the plant totaled about 3,200 people in June 1990.
