Ohio Senate Bill 5 Voter Referendum, Issue 2
The Ohio Collective Bargaining Limit Repeal appeared on the November 8, 2011 general election ballot in the state of Ohio as a veto referendum. Senate Bill 5 (SB5) was repealed by Ohio voters after a campaign by firefighters, police officers and teachers against the measure, which would have limited collective bargaining for public employees in the state. The formal title of the proposal that this measure nullified is Senate Bill 5. Among other provisions, SB 5 would have prevented unions from charging fair share dues to employees who opt out. The process to place the referendum on the ballot for voters to decide was completed by supporters, as signatures were certified by the Ohio Secretary of State. The group behind the referendum effort was the political action committee We Are Ohio.
Senate Bill 5 would have impacted the state's 400,000 public workers, restricting their ability to strike and collectively bargain. The bill would have limited public employees to collectively bargain for wages, preventing them from collectively bargaining for health insurance and pensions. It would also have prohibited all public employees from striking and could have increased employee contributions for pensions and healthcare.
According to reports, the measure's language was decided on August 3, 2011. A "yes" vote was a vote to keep the law, while a "no" vote was a vote to repeal the law. Interests raised more than $30 million for the campaign.

Issue 2, SB5 Rejected by Ohio Voters
Issue 2, also known in Ohio as Senate Bill 5, has been defeated by the citizens of Ohio by an overwhelming margin. The volume of votes cast for an off year appears to be historically high and the obvious reason is the law has had enormous coverage not just in Ohio, but nationally.

Yes, you read that correctly. The fact that two Tea Party Republicans introduced multiple “right to work (for less)” bills is a good thing for progressivism and organized labor in Ohio.
