UAW Endorses Issue 14 Delegates Say Passage of School Levy Imperative

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from UAW Region 2

    CLEVELAND, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Delegates to the UAW Community Action
 Council in a meeting last night unanimously endorsed the Cleveland School
 Levy.
     Region 2, UAW Director Warren Davis said, "UAW has 8,000 members and their
 families residing in Cleveland.  Their children, along with all children,
 deserve better schools.  Cleveland needs better schools.  Americans will pay
 now or pay much more later if nothing is done.  The Cleveland school system is
 unequal with other systems in Ohio's affluent areas, and that just should not
 be.  However, Cleveland is not alone.  The Cleveland system mirrors other
 urban and rural districts in Ohio.  The Cleveland school system needs this
 economic boost for our children and grandchildren."
     UAW Community Action Council Chairman, John Reichbaum said, "The Cleveland
 school system needs this school levy passed.  Schools are literally crumbling
 as the voters prepare to go to the polls on May 8.  To lose the levy means to
 lose $500 million in state aid; and that would be unfortunate, to say the
 least."
     Warren Davis is Director of Region 2 and Executive Board Member of the
 International Union, UAW.  Region 2 territory includes the Eastern half of
 Ohio, the Western half of Pennsylvania and all of West Virginia.  Davis is
 also serving as Chair of the Ohio UAW Political Action Council, representing
 170,000 members.
     John Reichbaum, President of UAW Local 2400, also serves as Chairman of
 the Cuyahoga-Medina Counties UAW CAP (Community Action Program) Council which
 includes delegates from twenty-six (26) locals, covering 72 bargaining units
 in Cuyahoga and Medina counties.  The CAP Council Program is the political arm
 of the UAW which makes recommendations to its members on candidates and issues
 important to all working men and women.
     UAW is not affiliated with any other Labor Organization on the local or
 state level.
     For comment and/or confirmation contact either:  Warren Davis or John
 Reichbaum.  Both can be reached at 216/447-6080.
