Editorial: Ohio Senate Should Reject Union Hiring Mandate


The OMA has previously warned against an Ohio House-approved measure (House Bill 205) aimed at forcing certain manufacturers to hire union labor. If the bill becomes law, it could possibly impact other businesses. The Blade (Toledo) is also pointing out the dangers of the bill. In a Nov. 2 editorial, the paper’s staff writes: “Tying hands, adding costs while enabling the building trades union is not a wise decision. … The Ohio Senate should not follow the Ohio House on the path of regulatory overreach.” 11/2/2023
