Tea Party Coalition To Push ‘Right-to-Work’ Amendment In Ohio

Labor groups and opponents of that law poured more than $24 million into the campaign to reject the union restrictions.
More than 61 percent voted against the collective bargaining measure on Tuesday, marking one of the biggest victories in decades for the labor movement.
Littleton tells The Associated Press the “right to work” amendment is about freedom of choice in the workplace, not collective bargaining.
