Everybody wants to know, how many SB5 Referendum Petition signers do we have, so far?
Well, with so many collectors and petitions in the field an accurate number of signers to date is impossible to know for now, but here's some information from OCSEA on how their petition drive is going so far:
From The AFL-CIO Blog:
Workers, activists and other volunteers are making fast progress in collecting the 231,000 signatures needed to put the repeal of S.B. 5 on the Ohio ballot this November. S.B. 5, pushed by Gov. John Kasich (R), eliminates the rights of 350,000 public employees to bargain for middle-class jobs.
The 35,000 member Ohio Civil Service Employees Association/AFSCME (OCSEA/AFSCME) set a goal of gathering 60,000 voters' signature. In a mere two weeks, OCSEA canvassers have collected more than 20,000 signatures to "Kill the Bill." (See photo.) Similar efforts are under way through the Buckeye State to hit the signature threshold by the June 30 deadline.
If you haven't signed as yet, here is an updated map of signing locations and events.
