STRIKE CONTINUES AT DOMINO SUGAR CORPORATION BROOKLYN REFINERY

 NEW YORK, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees of Domino Sugar Corporation's Brooklyn refinery, who have been on strike since Oct. 3, 1992, yestegar Corporation, said, "We are extremely disappointed that the employees at our Brooklyn refinery turned down the latest company proposal. This proposal specifically addressed the issues the union had indicated were most important to employees, including seniority and temporary employment."
 Mr. Vorsanger went on to say, "The company has done everything it could to convey to employees the serious economic problems currently facing the United States cane sugar refining industry and the fact that the present cost of running the Brooklyn refinery is probably the highest in the U.S. Because of this, we simply cannot continue to operate on a business as usual basis, and have negotiated with the union from the perspective of how to best maintain the viability of the Brooklyn refinery.
 Mr. Vorsanger added, "Yesterday's rejection of the proposed contract places the Brooklyn refinery in serious jeopardy."
