    ELYRIA, Ohio, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones
 along with Congressmen Sherrod Brown and Dennis Kucinich joined with members
 of the United Steel Workers of America, Local 6985, in a rally campaigning
 against York International March 31st.
     This rally is in response to York International's decision to leave its
 Elyria, Ohio location and move its operations to Wichita, Kansas and
 Monterrey, Mexico.  This move will result in the loss of jobs for
 800 employees of the plant.
     "I am glad to be here in support of the United Steelworkers of America,
 particularly Local 6985 and their families," said Rep. Tubbs Jones.  "I plan
 to work closely with my colleagues on behalf of our citizens to ensure that
 they will not continue to lose their jobs to corporate greed."

 of District One of the United Steelworkers of America.
