Many members have again received a solicitation from an organization called Protect Our Pensions, also known as POP5. OEA and OEA Retired want you to know that while there does not appear to be any inherent conflict between the stated goals of POP5 and OEA, it is important to note that there is nothing that POP5 is seeking to accomplish that OEA and our allies are not already working on.

Fight So-Called Right to Work.
For more information on So-Called Right to Work visit the ‘Right to Work’ is Wrong page on the OEA website.
So-Called Right to Work isn’t what it seems. It’s wrong for all workers and for the Middle Class.
Don’t let corporate interests fool you with the deceptive misnomer “right to work.” They’re hoping you never realize So-Called Right to Work means less freedom for workers, not more. So-Called Right to Work also threatens the safety of our working conditions by stifling workers’ freedom to point out potential safety issues on the job. Once again, greedy people are trying to tip the balance even more in their favor at the expense of the middle class and Ohio’s working families. We need to Protect Ohio Workers’ Rights.
