UAW Contract Discussion; Sen. Matt Dolan Sponsors Gun Safety Proposal; Anita Hollander

The United Auto Workers are going back to work after ratifying a new four-year contract with General Motors.  The union secured wage and benefits concessions from the automaker, but did not get a new product to make, and new life, for the shuttered plant in Lordstown.  The contract ends a six-week strike--one of the longest in decades. We'll get thoughts from the UAW president of the Lordstown local and ask about what comes next.  Later, State Senator Matt Dolan joins us to discuss the legislation he is sponsoring that puts Governor DeWine's gun safety proposals before state lawmakers.  Critics include both gun rights and gun control advocates. Does it have a chance of passing?  Then, we'll hear from Shaker Heights native, Anita Hollander.  She has spent her career acting and singing and advocating for people with disabilities.
