Collective Bargaining Changes For Ohio’s Public Workers

Posted Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

The legislature has voted. The governor has signed. Collective bargaining reform has passed. But the fight is far from over in Ohio. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll preview the massive repeal battle that's expected to consume state politics this year. We'll also look at what's actually in the final version of Senate Bill 5 and take a look at the history of the decades long struggle between unions and their public sector employers. Join us with your thoughts, Tuesday at 9 on 90.3.




Dr. John Russo, Professor and Labor Studies Program Coordinator, Youngstown State University
Jim Siegel, Reporter, The Columbus Dispatch
