Republican State Rep Ron Maag is looking for cosponsors for an anti-union, Right to Work bill he plans to introduce in the Ohio House.

Maag’s “Workplace Freedom” bill will deal only with public sector unions and will “remove any requirement under the Public Employees Collective Bargaining Law that public employees join or pay dues to any employee organization and prohibits public employers from requiring public employees to join or pay dues to any employee organization.”

In early 2011, Maag voted for Senate Bill 5, which would have decimated collective bargaining rights for Ohio’s public sector workers.  The bill sparked a huge pro-labor backlash.  The law was overturned by referendum.



  • I heard Roegner has the same bill for the private sector.


    Same old same old.

  • These guys never give up. Is this one going to be referred, too?

    Ron Maag, collaborator.

  • The Tea Party affiliated “FreedomWorks” has joined with the Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) for a so-called “aggressive grass roots state based campaign” to push back against “domineering unions” in Ohio. Both Ron Maag and Kristina Roegner are Tea Party darlings, as well as ALEC mercenaries, who do as they are told by their corporate sponsors.

    Let’s be sure to show them how aggressively OUR grass roots campaign will push back!

    This is great. It effectively sounds an early call-to-arms for democrats. It’s a great reminder that these chumps need to be beat down again. Kasich has to be pooping his pants. This could be Tea Party blowback from his Medicaid Expansion proposal. Ha! There knocking the snot out of one another long before the election. I love it.

    They just keep introducing one stupid thing after another— Right to Work, the heartbeat bill, defunding of Planned Parenthood, etc.— because they think people will get tired of fighting back. Meanwhile, while we’re fighting all the stupid things, the Christian GOP continues to extract money from Ohio.
