Ohio voters reject Republican-backed union limits

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The state's fujian granite (http://en.trade2cn.com/companyShop/110822105651A8U.html) new collective bargaining law was defeated Tuesday after an expensive union-backed campaign that pitted firefighters, police officers and teachers against the Republican establishment.
In a political blow to GOP Gov. John Kasich, voters handily rejected the law, which would have limited the bargaining abilities of 350,000 unionized public workers. With nearly 95 percent of the chuangda wet wipes (http://en.trade2cn.com/companyShop/100312152303ia7.html) votes counted late Tuesday, about 61 percent were to reject the law.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, among the many union leaders who hailed the outcome, said victory was achieved among Democrats and Republicans in urban and rural counties.
"Ohio sent a message to quanzhou Ski Suits (http://en.trade2cn.com/companyShop/26442197.html) every politician out there: Go in and make war on your employees rather than make jobs with your employees, and you do so at your own peril," he said.
Kasich congratulated his opponents and said he would spend time contemplating how best to take the state forward.
