POINT PLACE, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Right to Work issue, which could hit the Ohio ballot in 2014, is getting heated in the Toledo area. It took center stage at a special discussion Tuesday night.
In order to gain enough support to get it on the ballot, conservative groups like Ohioans for Workplace Freedom are holding informational meetings across the state. On Tuesday, they held a meeting in Point Place.
Passion from both sides of the argument was evident as the discussion became heated. Almost two years after Issue 2, commonly known as SB-5, was defeated, union matters will once again be in the forefront in 2014, this time as the "Workplace Freedom Amendment."
"It's a very simple thing," said John McAvoy, of Ohioans for Workplace Freedom. "It says you cannot be forced to pay union dues or pay a fair share fee to take a job. That is all…It doesn't do anything with bargain agreements or bargaining rights or union rights or any of that stuff."
Union supporters attended in strong opposition, but left before guest speaker Terry Bowman gave his presentation. Bowman, a UAW member and Ford employee, was instrumental in getting Michigan's Right to Work law passed.
Those in opposition in Ohio, and especially Toledo, say they're ready for the fight.
"Stand up tall and be proud of what you represent, and go out," said Ron Rothenbuhler, chairman of the Lucas County Democrats. "The quality of life that unions have provided for people in this corner of the earth is good, and we plan on keeping it."
