STEELWORKERS, LUKENS REACH TENTATIVE ACCORD

 STEELWORKERS, LUKENS REACH TENTATIVE ACCORD
 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Negotiators for the United


Steelworkers of America Local Union 1165 and the Lukens Steel Company reached a tentative agreement that could end a 4-month old strike at the company, the Union announced today.
 "After late-night negotiations for nearly the entire week, including all night last night, we've finally reached an tentative agreement with Lukens Steel," said Ray MacDonald, lead negotiator for the Union.
 Details of the tentative agreement will not be publicly released by the Union until the 1,338 members of Local Union 1165 have had a chance to hear them first-hand from the Local's Negotiating Committee. A meeting for that purpose will be scheduled tomorrow.
 "We'll lay out the details to the membership, and then let them decide," said Harry Haines, president of Local 1165.
 "No one should go back to work yet," Haines said. "The Union and the company will work out a back-to-work schedule once the membership ratifies the tentative agreement."
 Under the Local Union's bylaws, a ratification vote will not be held until at least 48 hours after the Negotiating Committee's explanation of the tentative agreement is given to the membership.
 The members of USWA Local Union 1165 have been on strike at Lukens' Coatesville, Pa., plant since Oct. 1, 1991.
