Many of us committed to working people have watched the events unfolding in Wisconsin with outrage. How could it happen in Wisconsin when it was the first state to allow public employees to collectively bargain and was also the first state to have a workers compensation system. How far we have come!
Ohio is soon to become the second front in the quest to strip workers of their rights to unionize and engage in collective bargaining. SB5 is the latest attack on workers in Ohio. Among other things SB5 would strip collective bargaining rights for state workers and decrease binding arbitration rights for police and fire fighters. It would gut teacher protections.
Kasich is also looking to overhaul the workers compensation system. How much more can Ohio’s workers take. Please stay informed and active. Tell your Ohio state senators and state legislators you are against these attacks.
