More good news this week for our neighbors to the north – this time out of the Buckeye State. Just across the Ohio River, a federal court emphatically reaffirmed the 1st Amendment rights of the citizens of Cincinnati by allowing them to promote right-to-work legislation.
Until the ruling, students in the University of Cincinnati chapter of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) were greatly restricted in collecting signatures on a petition supporting the Ohio Workplace Freedom Amendment, a right-to-work statute in Ohio.
Because of this ruling, the young people of Cincinnati are now free to voice their support for the individual liberty of laborers in Ohio to make voluntary agreements with employers without the coercive, third-party influence of labor unions.
The judiciary in Kentucky has yet to stand up for this sort of right-to-work legislation, but Ohioans in Cincinnati have.
