If you live in Ohio you are well aware that the voters overturned SB5. Unfortunately, you might not know that Gov. Kasich, the Republicans, the Tea Party Republicans, and far right Koch-supported organizations are waiting to bring up right to work legislation again.
This past summer, organizations were in Ohio talking up putting an end to unions.
ToledoBlade reports that ALEC supported groups, and Vincent Vernuccio of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, have been touring Ohio and organizing their next anti-union campaign. Teachers, firefighters, police, nurses, state workers, and their families and friends should be prepared for the next legislation to curb workers' rights. If Kasich is re-elected, we can be certain that he and his minions will try an SB5 type move again.
