Senate Bill 5 On Hold for Now

After weeks of rallies, a bill sharply limiting the collective bargaining rights of Ohio’s 350,000 public workers is on hold in the Ohio House.

The chairman of a House panel considering Senate Bill 5 has not scheduled any hearings for this week.

The bill would prohibit strikes and limit the rights of firefighters, police, teachers, and other public employees. Unions would not be able to collectively bargain for health care benefits or working conditions (such as maximum class sizes in schools).

The bill cleared the Republican-led state Senate. The House has not yet scheduled a vote.
