Vote No on Issue 1!

Protect Majority Rule in Ohio!

Steelworkers across Ohio, along with 250 other bipartisan organizations are working together to stop Issue 1, a Constitutional Amendment that will be on the ballot in a special election on August 8 of this year.

If passed, Issue 1 will overturn a 110-year right for Ohioans by raising the threshold to pass an amendment in Ohio from a simple majority of fifty percent plus one to sixty percent. The standards needed for Ohio’s citizens to veto unfair legislation passed by the Ohio General Assembly would be virtually impossible to reach.

Ohio Steelworkers have been here before. We know this isn't about party or politics, but power: making sure a select few have more, and ordinary working people have less.

This process was used to defeat Senate Bill 5 in 2011, when the legislature and governor tried to take collective bargaining away from the public sector. Some in the legislature have made no secret about wanting to make Ohio the next right to work for less state.
