RIGHT TO WORK-OHIO
'Right-to-work' backers in Ohio report 100K signatures toward goal of making 2014 fall ballot

Supporters of "right-to-work" restrictions in Ohio plan an Election Day petition push after gathering about one-fifth of the signatures they say they'll need to make the November 2014 ballot.
The group seeks a constitutional amendment banning mandatory union membership and prohibiting Ohio unions from charging dues to non-members. A pair of similar proposals stalled in the Legislature.
Democrats and unions have opposed the effort, calling it worse than a collective bargaining overhaul overturned by Ohio voters in 2011.
