Statement From Tower Automotive Regarding Union Comments

NOVI, Mich., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Tower Automotive's top priority is to develop a Plan of Reorganization that permits its U.S. operations to exit from bankruptcy as a profitable, competitive automotive supplier. This will enable us to continue supporting our customers and offering our colleagues valued employment because the only real job security is to be competitive. This can only come with sacrifice from all key parties.

Salaried and non-union colleagues have already made concessions totaling $32 million annually. We need our union colleagues to participate in a fair and equitable manner or many jobs will be jeopardized. While we know these concessions are difficult, they are some of the necessary actions to ensure that Tower's Plan of Reorganization is successful in a very competitive environment.

Tower Automotive remains committed to negotiate with its unions outside of the court process. Tower Automotive remains ready to meet at any time with its unions to negotiate a settlement.
