Urgent Action Alert for Ohio!

Labor Union Report:

Background:

On November 8th, Issue 2 will be on the ballot in Ohio.

Very simply, the decision Ohio voters will be making is as follows:

  • A YES vote allows Governor Kasich’s collective bargaining reform (SB 5) to go into effect
  • A NO vote essentially returns collective bargaining power to the unions and puts the state of Ohio into further economic uncertainty.
  • Unions are spending millions to defeat Issue 2 and right now, it appears (based on polls) they are winning.

    Why it’s important:

    Ohio is a big battleground state.

    If the unions win, they will be emboldened going into 2012. A loss for them will be a huge setback.

    Pre-market meltdown, Ohio had $46.5 billion in unfunded liabilities (retiree pension and healthcare). It is higher now.

    What is needed:
    For ye Twitter gods:
    • Tweets to encourage people to GOTV
    • Tweets on Issue 2 related posts (see below), with a push to GOTV
    • Phone banking: Building for a Better Ohio has info here to help: http://betterohio.org/volunteercenters
    Posts (as/if you have time)

    Frankly, at this point, anything urging GOTV is crucial.

    However, for background, Jason Hart has been doing a phenomenal job writing on the topic. Here is his twitter acct.  [Even RT'ing his posts would be good.]

    Here are some posts Jason’s, et al) that you may find useful:
    This is a good resource (if you need background):
    Again, since this will likely have an impact on 2012, the more you can do the better.
    Remember, the election is on November 8th.

    Time is running out.
