unionguy commented on the blog post Ohio: Republicans Switch Committee Members to Get Public Employee Bill Out of Committee
Ohioans are probably going to have to overturn this wretched bill at the ballot box. There is hope and good precedent on that front. I lived in Ohio from 1990-2007, and remember in 1997 the GOP passed a horrible bill making it harder for injured workers to collect workers’ comp. The unions gathered signatures to put it on the ballot, and voters overwhelmingly overturned the bill.
The people of Ohio can, and must, use referendum democracy to restore workplace democracy.
