In Ohio, Governor-elect John Kasich (R) made it clear that his administration has workers rights in their cross-hairs. In particular, Kasich took aim at public workers and railed against police and firefighter unions’ ability to call a neutral arbitrator to resolve labor disputes.
Kasich admitted that he’s love to eliminate binding arbitration and wishes he could fire any police or firefighter that wants to strike:
Take away arbitration, and take away a worker’s right to strike and what is left for workers? Nothing. Which is precisely what Kasich and other Republicans are striving for.
