COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A labor-backed group that helped defeat collective bargaining restrictions in Ohio says it’s using the five-year anniversary of the union law to remind supporters to stay active and engaged in its efforts.

In a Monday email to supporters, the We Are Ohio organization announced a revamping of its website as it looks to push back against right-to-work legislation and other proposals before the state legislature.

We Are Ohio spokesman Dennis Willard says the group wants to remind Ohioans throughout the presidential election year how they came together to defeat the law that Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) signed in 2011. Voters overwhelming overturned Senate Bill 5.

The announcement comes as Kasich makes a run for the White House.

Willard says the group doesn’t get involved in campaigns for elected office.
