While Senate Bill 5 would have changed the collective bargaining process for Ohio’s public employee unions, local officials say Tuesday’s defeat of Issue 2 won’t have much effect on how they do business.

The leaders said “the system is broken” to negotiate contracts with unions, but they’ll work with what they have.

Hamilton City Manager Joshua Smith said the defeat of Issue 2 is “irrelevant” because the city still has to have a balanced budget.
