Portman begins Ohio tour meeting with union, workers in Findlay

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) completed the first day of his Making a Difference Tour in Ohio this week, in an effort to emphasize good policies and concentrate on ways to build on them to make a difference for Ohio families.

During the tour, Portman will travel 1,300 miles to visit nine Ohio counties. On the tour’s first day, Portman met with United Steelworkers Local 207-L members in Findlay to discuss a trade-enforcement case involving workers and retirees of Cooper Tire and how he can help them win the case, which aims to  protect Ohio jobs

Portman also met with workers at the Marathon Petroleum Corp. expansion site in Findlay.

“It was good to see the Marathon expansion in Findlay,” Portman said. “This expansion means good construction jobs now and additional Marathon jobs in the future.”

Portman has held meetings with local Ohioans to create good-paying jobs, expand opportunities, combat human trafficking and tackle drug abuse in Ohio communities.
