On Monday, Apr. 20, the House Finance Committee passed HB 64 without the language that would have taken away faculty collective bargaining rights.
Thank you to everyone who took time over the past few days to write emails, make phone calls, and persuade others to send message to legislators. Clearly, your efforts worked!

We need to remain vigilant, in case this language reappears when the Ohio Senate starts their work on the state budget. But at least for the moment, congratulations to all, and thank you again for all of the fast and effective individual responses to the call for action.
