Pursuant to the terms of a 1999 labor agreement with the United Steelworkers of America ("USWA"), the USWA has the right to designate a nominee for consideration by the Committee on Directors and the Board of Directors for one seat on the Board. The nominee is to be a prominent individual with experience in public service, labor, education or business. The nominee shall not be or become, while serving as a director, an officer, employee or director of the USWA. Subject to complying with the same standards of conduct as every other Bethlehem director, and subject to annual election by the stockholders, the USWA nominee will serve as a director during the term of the 1999 labor agreement, which terminates July 31, 2004. Mr. Kaden, who has been the USWA's designated nominee throughout the term of the 1993 labor agreement, was again designated by the USWA for consideration as a director of Bethlehem by the Committee on Directors. The Committee on Directors has recommended that Mr. Kaden continue to serve as the USWA designated member of the Board.

As noted above, Mr. Civiletti is Chairman of Venable, Baetjer and Howard and Mr. Kaden is a partner of Davis Polk & Wardwell. Both of these law firms render legal services to Bethlehem in the ordinary course of business.
