In 2011, Ohio Governor John Kasich and his Republican-controlled legislature passed the radical Senate Bill 5 designed to impede the labor movement, particularly targeting unionized professors. "Collective Bargaining and the Battle of Ohio" is the story of how professors worked alongside firefighters, police, and janitors to defend universities, the value of higher education, and their collective bargaining rights. Faculty across the state joined 'We Are Ohio,' a historic coalition of unions and progressive groups that spearheaded efforts to protect employees' rights to have a voice in the workplace. A massive political struggle ensued, pitting the labor movement against powerful corporate forces, and on election day, Ohioans defended the middle class by repealing SB 5 by a nearly 2-1 margin. Through his compelling narrative, McNay outlines the importance of this powerful case study not only for Ohio, but also for its political, historical, and sociological implications
