STEELWORKERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT WITH ARMCO INC. PITTSBURGH, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Steelworkers of America (USW) announced today it had reached tentative agreement on new contracts for union members employed at three facilities of the merged Armco/Cyclops steel operations. The agreements cover more than 1,000 active and laid off workers at former Cyclops plants in Bridgeville and Titusville, Pa., where previous contracts expired on April 30, 1992, and the Armco plant in Baltimore, where the current contract was to have expired on Aug. 1, 1993. The workers are represented by USW Local 178 in Bridgeville, Local 3052 in Titusville and Local 3185 in Baltimore. Details were withheld pending ratification votes at the three locations on May 24. James English, chairman of the union's negotiating committee, said: "The agreements were the result of a lot of hard work over the past six months to save the plants from a possible shutdown and to retain an agreement that was consistent with the industry pattern in stainless bar and rod." -0- 5/14/92 /CONTACT: USW Communications Department, 412-562-2442/ CO: United Steelworkers of America ST: Pennsylvania IN: MNG SU: CON
