Repeal SB5 in Ohio

When Ohio Governor John Kasich passed Senate Bill 5, a law that restricted labor union rights, HammerHard MediaWorks principal Matt Muchowski was ready to organize with local unions and repeal the law.

Muchowski coordinated with a team of media professionals to help turn a state-wide election into a nation-wide story.  Muchowski also led several earned-media events, trained community members on media talking points, acted as a media spokesperson, and wrote for national publications about the elections.

Muchowski’s focus on grassroots organizing led him to train hundreds of community members to talk to thousands of their neighbors in order to repeal the law.

The election was a landslide victory for organized labor that sent a message, that Ohio will not allow union rights to be taken away.
