 STEELWORKERS SCHEDULE STAKEHOLDERS' MEETING TO ASSESS STATE OF
 RAVENSWOOD ALUMINUM AND DISCUSS STEPS TO ASSURE VIABILITY
 CHARLESTON, W.Va., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Steelworkers of America (USW) announced today it will hold the First Annual Stakeholders' Meeting of Ravenswood Aluminum Corp. (RAC), from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the Charleston Civic Center.
 "Stakeholders own no stock in the company, but they have made significant contributions to its success, and their well-being is directly tied to the company's fortunes, good and bad," George Becker, USW vice president, said in announcing plans for the meeting. Becker will chair the meeting.
 Jim Bowen, director of USW District 23 and coordinator of the meeting, said RAC stakeholders include the 1,700 USW members locked out of their jobs more than 14 months ago, small businesses, customers, suppliers, community and religious groups and others whose futures are linked to RAC.
 The meeting will assess the current state of the company, bring to public light certain of its activities which have damaged the workers and their communities, and discuss positive steps that need to be taken to assure RAC's long-term viability.
 A number of political, civic and business leaders have been invited, as well as the 1,700 USW members who were locked out of their jobs by RAC more than 14 months ago, the union said.
 Speakers will represent each of the stakeholder groups. Among them will be Gov. Gaston Caperton; The Most Rev. Bernard Schmitt, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wheeling/Charleston; Joe Powell, president of the West Virginia AFL-CIO; a metals industry analyst from New York, and spokespersons for families, workers, communities and businesses, the union said.
