COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A spokesman for a group that supports Ohio's controversial new collective bargaining law says repealing it is "not a solution."
Voters are set to decide in November whether to repeal the law, which bans public employee strikes and restricts collective bargaining rights for more than 350,000 workers. It's the focus of a debate broadcast around Ohio this weekend on a radio show hosted by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.
A spokeswoman for the We Are Ohio campaign opposing the law said during the debate that the lawmaking process was the time for negotiation. She says the Republican-led Legislature could repeal the law if it was sincere about compromising with unions.
A spokesman for Building a Better Ohio, which supports the law, says the other side is obligated to propose alternatives.
