Matt Mayer, president of Opportunity Ohio, submitted a proposal to the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission, suggesting right-to-work amendments to the Ohio Constitution.  This is the first proposal the OCMC received from outside the Commission.  The proposed amendments would prohibit mandatory union membership or dues and prohibit the use of public resources to assist a labor organization in collecting dues.  It is predicted that it will not gain the required votes of 2/3 of the Commission members.  See Hamilton Journal-News, Right to work amendment unlikely to advance far.

The Commission is determining whether their charge includes reviewing entirely new constitution sections proposed by the public.  See Hannah Report, OCMC Committee Delays Decision on Whether to Hear ‘Right-to-Work’ Proposal, April 9, 2015.
