Christie: Ohio Union Win Won’t Affect Efforts

Governor Chris Chrstie (R) (Governor's Office)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie angered public employee unions by winning passage of a law upping  health care and pension contributions for government workers.
  

But he says he doesn’t believe those efforts to save taxpayers money will be affected by the union victory in Ohio that turns back a more far-reaching law in that state curbing collective bargaining.
  

Ohio voters Tuesday repealed a law signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich that would have banned public employee strikes, scrapped binding arbitration, and denied public workers the ability to negotiate pensions and health care benefits.
  

Christie says he sees no “lessons to be learned” from Ohio. The Republican governor says New Jersey enacted changes “the way we wanted to do it in New Jersey” and “very effectively.”
