'Vote No' Issue 2 poster
Description: This poster urges voters to register to vote against the right to work amendment. The "right to work" amendment proposed to the Ohio Constitution in 1958 stipulated that no person could be denied, or excluded from, employment due to membership or non-membership in a labor organization. This placed legal limitations on union security agreements. A vigorous lobbying campaign by the AFL-CIO helped to overwhelmingly defeat the Republican Ohio Assembly's bid to pass the amendment.
