OHIO ROUNDTABLE RESPONDS TO REMOVING MANDATORY SICK LEAVE FROM THE BALLOT September 04 2008
Rob Walgate, (440) 572-1796
In response to the announcement that Issue 4, the mandatory sick leave measure, will be removed from the ballot, Ohio Roundtable issued the following statement:
Sick leave for employees is a good idea. A one size fits all government mandate is not. California has rejected the mandate as too radical. It is now obvious Ohioans would have rejected this radical mandate as well. The Roundtable will continue to fight to protect the rights of workers and companies to negotiate their best benefits without fear of government intrusion.
The Ohio Roundtable founded in 1980 is a non-partisan, non-profit education and research organization. David Zanotti is President & CEO and Rob Walgate is Vice President. The Roundtable has been actively involved in ballot issue campaigns in Ohio and nationwide since 1988.
