Ohio Tea Party Group Lobbys for 'Right to Work' State


New conservative group Ohioans for Workplace Freedom, is lobbying to make Ohio a “right to work” state, reports The-News-Leader.com.

The group has already submitted the necessary paperwork to the state attorney general with the hope that the issue will appear on the ballot in 2012.

“The bottom line is this, if any Ohio worker wants to join a union, they should be free to do so,” Chris Littleton, founding member of the Ohio Liberty Council, said. “But if any Ohio worker does not want to join a union, they should be free to make that decision as well.”

The group would need around 386,000 signatures from registered voters to see their issue on the ballot.

Ohio voters previously rejected a similar initiative in the late 1950s.

“Forced unionization serves like a weight on the back of the economy,” Bryan Williams, director of government affairs for the Associated Builders and Contractors of Ohio, said. “And at a time when we’re in a prolonged economic recession, we don’t need that anvil on our back.”
