OHIO UAW MEETS TODAY IN STATE CAPITAL TO MAKE CHOICE IN PRESIDENTIAL RACE

 OHIO UAW MEETS TODAY IN STATE CAPITAL
 TO MAKE CHOICE IN PRESIDENTIAL RACE
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders of the United Auto Workers from across the state of Ohio are in Columbus today, meeting to decide whether to back a candidate for president.
 Hamilton County Judge Robert Gorman, of the First District Court of Appeals will address the UAW's Presidential Preference Conference. Gorman is challenging Republican Chief Justice Thomas Moyer for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court.
 The hundreds of delegates in attendance will vote by secret ballot, to determine whether to provide labor backing for either Republican President George Bush or Democratic challenger Bill Clinton.
 The UAW has clashed with Clinton in the past over his support for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The UAW has adamantly opposed NAFTA as undermining the jobs of American unionists.
 Clinton has recently softened his position saying that he supports free trade with Mexico "as long as it doesn't cost American jobs or compromise American health and environmental standards."
 Last night in his acceptance speech, President Bush pointed to NAFTA as a major accomplishment to secure America's position in the world economy. Last week, the President announced that the U.S., Canada and Mexico have completed NAFTA negotiations. Congress, as well as the Mexican and Canadian legislatures must still approve.
 The UAW has over 200,000 members who are active politically, affecting the votes of at least a half-million people in Ohio. The Presidential Preference Conference is seen as having significance for that reason.
 Delegates will come from both of the UAW's regions, 2 and 2B. Region 2 Director is Warren Davis. Jack Sizemore is Director of Region 2B. The conference will be held at 1 p.m., today, at the Holiday Inn, 175 Hutchinson Avenue, Columbus.
