OPPOSITION TO TRADE PACT

Flanked by Donald Blatt, left, District 1 staff representative from the United Steelworkers union, and Chad Culbertson, president of local 1-346, U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur signs a statement supporting Colombian worker rights. Miss Kaptur (D., Toledo) met with steelworkers members yesterday to oppose the proposed Colombia Free Trade Agreement that is awaiting Congress' approval. President Bush is pushing the accord as providing improved trade with the country, but Ms. Kaptur and the steelworkers said it has no enforceable labor or environmental standards.
