UAW backs casino issue

Thousands of Ohio auto workers are getting behind Issue 3.

The UAW union Region 2B is endorsing the state issue, which would allow one casino each to be built in Toledo, Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati.

The 180,000 active and retired workers say the issue would create thousands of jobs.

Issue 3 will be on the November ballot.
