PITTSBURGH PRESS COMPANY RESPONDS TO UNION STATEMENTS

 PITTSBURGH PRESS COMPANY RESPONDS TO UNION STATEMENTS
 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A number of statements have been made today by the attorney and chief spokesperson for the unions representing certain employees of the Pittsburgh Press Company.
 The Pittsburgh Press Company today responded through spokesman Randall P. Notter to these statements by saying that:
 "First the Pittsburgh Press Company is not trying to force a strike. In fact, we're trying to avoid such a situation and have offered to meet with union officials at any time to resolve contract issues.
 "Second, any strike would have no bearing whatsoever on the length or life of the joint operating agreement with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. This agreement remains in effect through 1999 and nothing that's being said will change that.
 "Third, the Pittsburgh Press Company is not proposing to eliminate the Teamster Pension Plan. Our proposal calls for the current pension plan to remain as it is and a new mirror plan developed. Again, there is no intent or plan to eliminate the pension plan.
 "Fourth, as part of our negotiations we are proposing changes in health care coverages. It is still too early in the negotiations to be able to say specifically what the final changes will be.
 "The threats and the misinformation being presented today will not replace the need for negotiation. The company has stated its willingness and availability to meet at any time."
