OCAW DISAVOWS STATEMENT AND REPORT ABOUT 1990 ARCO EXPLOSION

 DENVER, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers (OCAW) International Union was not a party to a recent news release with a group called Communities Concerned about Corporations regarding the July 5, 1990 explosion at Arco's chemical plant at Channelview, Texas, said the union's president, Robert E. Wages, today. Published reports, including a July 8 UPI wire release originating from Texas City, Texas, indicated that OCAW and Communities Concerned about Corporations jointly released a report on the causes of the explosion.
 "The president speaks for OCAW on issues such as this," Wages said. "I have made no such statement, and neither has the union. We disavow any connection with the news release, the statements contained therein, and the report it referred to.
 "If and when OCAW decides to issue an official statement about the tragedy at Channelview, or on any other issue affecting the industry's workforce, then it will come directly from me," he said.
