UNIONS, AT&T TEMPORARILY RECESS TALKS UNTIL 9 A.M. EDT TUESDAY

 UNIONS, AT&T TEMPORARILY RECESS TALKS UNTIL 9 A.M. EDT TUESDAY
 Following virtually non-stop negotiations all day today, bargainers for CWA, AT&T and IBEW recessed at the company's request. The talks are scheduled to resume tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. Eastern time.
 CWA President Morton Bahr noted that 28 items of dispute remain between the two unions and AT&T, and said, "most of these are major issues, including several very key issues in the area of employment security." Bahr said that he is "more pessimistic today about achieving a settlement in the near term than I was on Saturday."
 The current union contract expired on Saturday, May 30, but the parties agreed to keep negotiating so long as some progress was being made.
 Members of CWA and IBEW have authorized union leaders to call a strike if they deem it necessary.
 CWA represents 100,000 workers at AT&T and IBEW represents another 27,000. The unions are bargaining jointly.
 CONTACT: Jeff Miller or Gaye Williams Mack, 202-434-1172, both of CWA.
