Kasich http://michiganradio.org en Opponents start push to repeal Ohio union law http://michiganradio.org/post/opponents-start-push-repeal-ohio-union-law <p>Opponents of an Ohio law to limit public workers&#39; collective bargaining rights have started gathering signatures to get a referendum on the measure. Governor John Kasich signed the measure Thursday. It bans public worker strikes, eliminates binding arbitration, and restricts bargaining for 350,000 public workers.</p><p>The bill was supported by the Republican majority in the Legislature and by business groups and tea party activists. They say it&#39;s needed to help Ohio economically. Unions and Democrats opposed it.</p><p>The bipartisan coalition leading the petition drive will need more than 230,000 valid signatures by June 30 to put a referendum on November&#39;s ballot.
