In this edition of WYSO Weekend:
As election day nears, advocates continue to lobby for and against a ballot measure that would limit how much Ohio could pay for prescription drugs. After months of political ads on both sides, some voters are confused about how the passage of Issue 2 could affect them. For more details about the proposal, WYSOs Jerry Kenney spoke with the Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau’s Andy Chow. Chow says if passed, Issue 2 would tie the cost of prescription drugs purchased by state agencies to the price paid by the VA.
Last week, workers at Fuyao Glass America in Moraine filed for representation with the United Auto Workers union. To learn more about the process of forming a union, and what to expect with next month’s Fuyao union vote, WYSO’s April Laissle spoke with a labor-relations expert. Matt Crawford is an attorney with the firm “Doll, Jansen and Ford” – it’s a Dayton practice that represents the interests of workers and unions. The firm is not involved in the Fuyao union effort.
