COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two Ohio lawmakers plan to introduce legislation that would prohibit the state’s public transit unions from starting strikes.

The Dayton Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2iItO1D ) that the legislation from Republican state Reps. Mike Henne and Jeff Rezabek, both of Clayton, would require transit employee unions and local transit authorities to submit to binding community arbitration.

The transit authority and the union would each select a representative in the community to negotiate on their behalf.
