Ohio Republicans are planning to hold committee hearings on HB 151, State Rep Roegner’s private sector anti-union bill, and HJR5, a bill that could effectively add anti-union language the Ohio constitution through a ballot initiative, in the Ohio House today.
Recent actions by Ohio’s Republicans could make it more difficult for opponents of the anti-union bills like HB151 to gather signatures for a referendum and to rally at the Ohio Statehouse in opposition to the bills.
The last time Republicans put a so-called Right-to-Work (for less) amendment on the ballot was 1958. That year, Republicans lost control of the Ohio House and Senate and nearly every statewide office.
