Strickland rejects such comments as "disingenuous," insisting that the executive orders he signed are good public policy, did not force anyone to join the union and were not motivated by politics.Except reality states the opposite.
Still, the governor's orders will allow Ohio Council 8 of AFSCME to collect about $2.1 million during the next year from the roughly 7,000 self-employed child-care providers.
The Service Employees International Union Local 1199, which is representing about 7,000 independent home health-care providers, could not provide its annual collection. However, the union will get 1.75 percent of the earnings of independent health-care workers who joined the union and a reduced portion from workers who have not become members.
Griggs said she will pay $12 a week. Even though she hasn't joined the SEIU, Griggs is covered by the union contract and must pay an assessment to the union.
Nothing like abusing the office of Governor for your own personal gain, eh?
Why does Strickland have a reputation as a nice guy again?
