Some GOP Lawmakers Question Bill To Limit Union Rights Ohio's state house has been besieged by union protesters just like in Wisconsin.
The Buckeye State demonstrators have been roused by a legislative effort by the Republican Gov. John Kasich and GOP lawmakers to rein in the collective bargaining rights of unions that represent public workers, similar in theme if not every detail to what's occurring in Wisconsin. Adding to the ire of Ohio's demonstrators are state police restrictions on the numbers of protesters allowed into the state capitol building for safety reasons, state officials there are saying. The Columbus Dispatch reports: Fearing for the safety of the hundreds already gathered in the Statehouse, the patrol locked outside doors, leaving throngs of protesters on rings that hold pandora beads the east side along Third Street chanting and cheering so loud that they could be heard across Downtown. "My taxes pay for this real pandora charms and I should be allowed in," said Diane where to buy pandora bracelet charms Twarog, a representative for the Service Employees International Union, who made the trip with her niece and nephew from St. Clairsville. Legislative Democrats said this afternoon they are seeking an injunction to force Statehouse officials and the Ohio Highway Patrol to open the doors and allow more people in. An interesting aspect of the Ohio situation is that some Republican lawmakers question the wisdom of the Senate bill which would effectively neuter the unions. Some conservatives view what the governor and other Republicans propose as a violation pandora order of contract rights. (Some liberals have been saying as much on the Internet, as well.) "Even if you say these are publicly granted contracts so the government has more leeway, you're opening up a Pandora's Box to the principle that government can interfere with private contract rights when it suits government's purpose," Grendell said.
"If you're a conservative or a tea party person, you should be greatly concerned about that concept because today's collective bargaining agreement could be tomorrow's private business contract." Grendell said he favors some changes to collective bargaining limiting binding arbitration rulings under a new formula and making teachers re earn their tenure but he thinks the bill goes too far. Eliminating collective bargaining for state workers as a way to establish a grievance process to settle disputes over terminations or other workplace issues would be replaced by lawsuits.
