Union bosses prefer rhetoric and misinformation over real reform for Ohio

August 22, 2011 J

On Friday, union bosses again showed their unwillingness to work to improve Ohio’s future and bring jobs back to the Buckeye State, when they failed to even show up at a meeting called by Governor Kasich, Senate President Niehaus, and House Speaker Batchelder.

For months, Union bosses have shown they are unwilling to work toward reforms needed to get Ohio back on track to jobs and prosperity. Union bosses’ political allies failed to offer any amendments to Senate Bill 5 during the legislative process.

Instead of working constructively with legislative leaders, union bosses and special interests continue to spread misinformation about Senate Bill 5 (Issue 2), and have forced us into a costly campaign to preserve a crucial reform for Ohio.

Some unions are even forcing their members to pay toward the campaign to repeal Senate Bill 5, regardless of whether the member agrees with the repeal effort or not. Despite the forced campaign contributions and the rhetoric, the unions’ repeal effort is losing steam, as evidenced this weekend by a rally for repeal that was sparsely attended (click here to read more).

Without Senate Bill 5, many schools, townships, cities, and other local governments may be left with no other option than job-killing tax hikes.

Below is a list of scheduled Taxpayer Town Halls, and over the next few weeks we’ll be announcing more town halls across the state. Please join us and bring your friends, family, and neighbors to learn more and find out what you can do to help.
