Deputy Mayor Herwat to testify before Ohio Senate regarding collective bargaining law
Toledo Deputy Mayor Steve Herwat will testify before the Ohio Senate Insurance, Commerce & Labor committee this afternoon regarding proposed changes to Ohio’s collective bargaining law.
Herwat will represent the Bell administration in advocating for changes to Ohio’s collective bargaining law that reflect our fiscal times. His testimony will not advocate for or against specific proposed changes in Senate Bill 5, but will outline the City of Toledo’s experience over the past year with collective bargaining in the face of scarce financial resources. He will encourage the Senate to consider and address those issues in the legislation as they affect local governments and taxpayers across Ohio.
The Senate Insurance, Commerce & Labor committee meets this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. in the South Hearing Room at the Ohio Statehouse.
