Presidential Action Urged by Steel Groups

Washington— The Specialty Steel Industry of North America (SSINA) and the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) have sent a letter to President Bush following a rebuff by the government of India with respect to U.S. concerns about surging imports of stainless steel. Following the failure of the Indian government to respond to concerns about the dramatic surge of imports of stainless steel bar, angle, rod and wire, domestic producers and the steelworkers union have asked President Bush to add these products from India to the steel import relief program promptly.

"There is no question that the Indians are directly and intentionally challenging the President's program, despite their earlier promises to the contrary. It is time for action," said Paul Kelly, Chairman of SSINA and President and Chief Executive Officer of Slater Steel, Inc.

"Our members' jobs are being lost because of the irresponsible behavior of the Indian government and its steel producers," said Leo Gerard, International President of United Steelworkers of America. "There could not be a clearer case for action, and we respectfully urge the President to save these valuable jobs by including India under his program."
