Kasich Rescinds Collective Bargaining For Home Health Workers; Union Blasts Move

Independent, self-employed home health and child care contractors will no longer be eligible to collectively bargain with the state under an executive order Gov. John Kasich issued Friday.

Immediately rescinded were two executive orders Gov. Ted Strickland issued in 2007 and 2008 to respectively establish collective bargaining for independent home health care workers and independent child care home providers.
