Unions Mobilizing To Fight Ohio ‘Right To Work’ Proposal.

The organization behind a 2011 campaign against Ohio’s sweeping collective bargaining law says it’s ready to unleash its army of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of email and social media followers against an emerging right-to-work initiative in the state.

We Are Ohio planned a news conference on its 2012 plans Monday.

Spokesman Dennis Willard said the group still has 17,000 volunteers, 450,000 email addresses and 100,000 followers on Facebook.

Supporters turned back a law limiting the bargaining rights of 350,000 police, firefighters, teachers and other public workers.

Ohioans for Workplace Freedom emerged days after the collective bargaining bill was rejected. The group is gathering signatures for a likely 2013 ballot issue that would keep workers covered by labor contracts from having to join a union or pay dues.
