SICK-DAY ISSUE PULLED FROM THE BALLOT
9/5/2008

Ohioans for Healthy Families, the group that backed the paid sick-day amendment, announced Thursday that it has asked that the proposal be pulled off the Nov. 4 ballot.

Officials with the Serice Employees International Union were holding a press conference yesterday morning with Gov. Ted Strickland and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, to announce the decision.

Strickland and Brown said they would push for a separate law requiring paid sick days.
