 UAW AND GENERAL MOTORS AT AFL-CIO UNION-INDUSTRIES SHOW
 PORTLAND, Ore., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The UAW and General Motors will raffle an all-new 1992 Oldsmobile Achieva SL four-door sedan at the AFL-CIO Union-Industries Show to be held May 15-18, 1992, here at the Oregon Convention Center. To enter the raffle, persons must be at least 18-years-old and complete a contest entry form at the UAW-GM exhibit. One lucky winner will be selected at a drawing to be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 18, at the show.
 "This is really exciting for the UAW and General Motors to be able to proudly give away one of our great UAW-built GM cars and trucks," said Donald J. Davis of the UAW and Richard K. McMillan of GM. "We hope this shows the people of Portland how UAW-represented GM workers build smart, high-quality contemporary vehicles."
 The handsome, bright-red 1992 Oldsmobile Achieva, fresh from the ground up with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $17,849, will be on display at the UAW-GM exhibit throughout the AFL-CIO Union- Industries Show, which features more than 300 exhibits of products and services manufactured or offered by union workers in America. Admission to the show is free.
 In addition, the UAW-GM exhibit will include six other GM production vehicles, a concept car, engine displays and examples of numerous joint UAW-GM education, training and development programs offered to approximately 300,000 UAW-represented GM workers located at some 150 GM plants and warehouses across the United States.
 "The public will be able to see how we are building a better America by providing our workers with learning opportunities to achieve their potential as individuals and gain new jobs skills as craftsmen," said Davis and McMillan.
 More than 75 UAW-GM workers will be on hand to answer questions and guide visitors through the UAW-GM display, highlighting the skills UAW- GM workers bring to their jobs and the products consumers use everyday. A team of UAW-GM workers representing the GM Lansing (Mich.) Car Assembly Plant, where the Oldsmobile Achieva is built, will be among the UAW-GM workers at the convention center.
