Ohio, Sept 3 (THAINDIAN NEWS) President Obama is going to spend part of his labor day campaigning in the United Auto Workers Rally in the city of Toledo where organized labor is very recognized.

Unions have been protesting for a long time and they are looking to show their relevance in the elections of the US. Every election year, the unions always go from door to door trying to mobilize voters to vote for whom they want to take office. Vice president Joe Bidden has spent the last two labor days in Ohio labor gatherings. The union members have a lot of issues that they say they will not accept and that they say will play a very big part in the elections.

Democrats are hoping that the defeat of a republican backed union last year will be a good thing to help Obama win the coming elections. It will be a bit hard to get union members in Ohio to vote. There are a lot of them in Ohio and that is why presidential hopefuls are doing all that they can to set up terms that the union members will agree to and vote for them in the upcoming elections. Union members are starting to have a power over how the elections will turn out.
