 USW: CLOSING OF CYCLOPS BRIDGEVILLE PLANT IS SIGN THAT REPUBLICAN NATIONAL ADMINISTRATIONS HAVE TURNED BACKS ON INDUSTRY
 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Steelworkers of America (USW) said today the announced closing of the Bridgeville plant of Cyclops Industries is yet another sign that Republican national administrations have turned their backs on American industry.
 "This is the latest in a series of disasters caused by the Reagan- Bush era," said USW President Lynn R. Williams. "It's astounding that, even to this day, Mr. Bush doesn't seem to understand the full impact of the harm that's been done.
 "The USW has made and will continue to make every attempt it can to save this plant and every plant where an announcement of this kind is made."
 To that end, Williams said he has written to James F. Will, president and CEO of Cyclops, and Robert L. Purdum, chairman and CEO of Armco, asking for a top-level meeting to discuss what the company's plans are with regard to its facilities.
 Williams pointed out that union representatives had met several times recently with Cyclops to discuss the company's request for early contract negotiations.
 "The biggest difficulty in dealing with the issue is that we've been unable to get assurances that anything we do will save the plant," Williams said.
