    Default 'Right to work' could be on the ballot in Ohio with support from lawmakers

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Supporters of "right to work" legislation are taking a different route to enact changes critics say would unnecessarily weaken unions in Ohio.

    Ohio Republicans have shied away from advancing right to work bills after voters overwhelmingly voted in 2011 to repeal the controversial law Senate Bill 5, which would have limited collective bargaining among public sector employee unions.

    Instead of a state law, a pair of Republican legislators want to put right to work language and other union-related provisions in the state constitution -- if Ohio voters approve.

    Reps. John Becker and Craig Riedel have proposed a package of six separate constitutional amendments that would limit how unions are funded, ban project labor agreements where the state or cities require union labor for construction projects and eliminate prevailing wage, which sets a floor wage for skilled labor on publicly funded projects.

    Right-to-work holdouts face new efforts to change labor laws

    TOLEDO, Ohio - Hemmed in by a growing number of states that block mandatory union fees in workplaces, holdout states in the Midwest are facing renewed attempts to enact so-called right-to-work laws.

    Missouri's new law will go to a statewide referendum in November, while a pair of Republican lawmakers in Ohio announced last month they want to put the issue before voters in two years.

    With many of their neighboring states - some with deep ties to organized labor - already adopting right-to-work laws, the question is whether unions and their Democratic supporters will able to stop the next domino from falling.

    In Ohio, Another Effort to Institute RTW
    Some lawmakers in Ohio were up to their old tricks again last week when a hearing was held to discuss a so-called right-to-work (RTW) bill. But the Teamsters and other unions showed up and made it clear that the Buckeye State doesn’t need any more laws that infringe on the rights of workers.

    While state Rep. John Becker (R) tried to peddle to the public that the legislation, known as HB 53, would only enshrine into state law the recent “Janus v. AFSCME” decision handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court in June, labor and pro-worker allies weren’t having any of it. Ohio, they noted, rejected RTW in a 2011 referendum vote, and there was no reason to consider the issue again.

    “Right to work bills like HB 53 are big government interfering with public sector unions,” said Tim Price, Chairman of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen’s Ohio State Legislative Board. “The public sector should be able to make agreements with the employees that best suit their business model.”

    Democrats on the House Finance Committee also pushed back on the bill, saying Becker was not being forthcoming on the true ramifications of the legislation. Hannah Halbert, a researcher for Policy Matters Ohio, echoed that point.

    Key Lawmaker Says Not To Expect A "Right To Work" Bill Anytime Soon

    One of Ohio’s key supporters of the controversial anti-union measure “right to work” says he’s not going to push for it anymore.

    Republican Rep. John Becker says he still supports the idea of not requiring workers to join a union in order to get a job and has proposed so-called “right to work” measures in the past. But he won’t push for it in this General Assembly.

    “I see no opportunity to pass "right to work" in the near future in the state of Ohio," Becker says.

    Becker says House Speaker Larry Householder is friendly to unions and Gov. Mike DeWine has threatened to veto a Right to Work bill if it came to him. Becker says he knows there are still some of his fellow lawmakers who support it. He notes a proposed provision that would have changed the prevailing wage in Ohio also failed.
