Members of the Board of Trustees of the School Employees Retirement System (SERS) will vote on Monday, October 9, regarding cuts and three-year freezes to retiree cost of living increases (COLAs).
OAPSE has been working to stop these cuts and freezes and has been urging the board members to vote against them.
OAPSE activists marched on the Statehouse and the SERS building in June. OAPSE executive board leaders have attended meetings of the SERS Board of Trustees and have testified before the Ohio Legislature. Executive Director Joe Rugola addressed the SERS board members about our union’s opposition to the cuts and freezes and how devastating they will be to OAPSE members.
And this week, our union sent letters to OAPSE members who serve on the Board of Trustees.
