Abstract: Let h be a PL involution of $ F \times [0,1]$ such that $ h(F \times \{ 0,1\} ) = F \times \{ 0,1\} $, where F is a compact 2-manifold. It is shown that h is equivalent to an involution $ h'$ of the form $ h'(x,t) = (g(x),\lambda (t))$. This result is applied to classify the PL involutions of closed, orientable, Seifert manifolds when the fixed-point set contains a two-dimensional component of negative characteristic.
