Labor unions are making their biggest campaign stand of 2011 in Ohio, hoping to steal momentum from efforts nationally to scale back union rights by decisively defeating a law here limiting public-employee bargaining.

But supporters of the measure, including Republican Gov. John Kasich, are fighting to defend it as the right move for Ohio, and it isn’t clear if the law’s defeat would have the broader implications unions envision. Various recent polls have given opponents of the law a lead of more than 10 percentage points leading up to Tuesday’s vote.
