Final Push on Ohio Union Law

Ohioans are being deluged for one last day with arguments for and against the state's contentious new collective bargaining law, as forces for and against it make their final push for votes.

Ohio voters are deciding Tuesday whether to retain or reject a full-scale rewrite of laws governing unions representing 350,000 police, firefighters, teachers and other public-sector workers. The law would allow bargaining on wages, work conditions and some equipment. But it outlaws public worker strikes, scraps binding arbitration and prevents promotions based solely on seniority.

The campaign has attracted more than $30 million in campaign giving.
