Google Alert - United Steel Workers last August 2009 opposed ASARCO court recommendation

The Steelworkers Union Attorneys [along with the Federal DOJ, the EPA, the TCEQ and N.M. Env. Dept.] failed to ask the Courts to look at the liabilities from ASARCO illegally burning unmanifested toxic-wastes (hazardous wastes) for years in both El Paso TX and E. Helena, MT.  WHY??!!

USW Opposes ASARCO Bankruptcy Recommendation ... Throughout the more than four years that ASARCO has been in bankruptcy, Asarco, Inc. has been displaced ...

"According to Robert LaVenture, Director of USW District 12 and chairman of bargaining with ASARCO, the USW is continuing to closely analyze the bankruptcy’s court lengthy report. LaVenture stated that “the USW believes the bankruptcy court failed to deal with the Union's key argument that Grupo Mexico’s proposed plan of reorganization cannot and should not be confirmed because of its failure to reach a new labor agreement with the USW, which is an obligation found in the current collective bargaining agreement.”  LaVenture states that the Union intends to file pleadings in the district court addressing what the USW believes to be the legal and other errors in the bankruptcy court’s recommendation."
