Reforming Ohio’s Collective Bargaining Law

Posted Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

The Ohio Senate is debating a bill that would sap public employee unions of their power by eliminating collective bargaining for state employees and reforming union rules for government workers and teachers. Police and fire unions would lose some clout, too. Are these public-employee unions costing taxpayers too much? Or is it, as the unions contend, a partisan political attack on public employees? Join us to talk about collective bargaining reform, Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
