Message from State FOP President Jay McDonald
The law enforcement community has been focusing on the attacks on our integrity, and rightfully so. However, we cannot forget about the jeopardy our workplace rights can find themselves in.
In Missouri, in West Virginia and now in Wisconsin...Right to Work is Wrong is at the political forefront. We cannot forget what having workplace protections for our membership means.
I was just in North Dakota, a state without the same kind of rights we have. An officer told me that he was disciplined for being in 3 traffic crashes in 12 months. OK, does not really seem unreasonable until he told me that 2 of them were HIM being REAR-ENDED??? The Chief or Sheriff operate without regard to any rules there they told me...is that what we want in the Buckeye State?
Talk to your friends and neighbors. Tell them that it is ALREADY the law that no one can be forced to join a union. Tell them that those who pay a agency or fair share fee do not have those fees going towards political purposes. Tell them that workers in Right to Work is Wrong states make $500 less per month (every worker, not just union worker) and that workplace fatalities are over 50% higher in Right to Work is Wrong states.
Right to Work is Wrong for workers (including cops), Right to Work is wrong for the middle class, Right to Work is Wrong for Ohio!

The last contract resulted in an agreement to permit bargaining unit employees* in the service of the state to receive credit for prior service with the State, the Ohio National Guard, or any political subdivision of the State for the purposes of computing vacation leave in accordance with Ohio Revised Code section 9.44. These provisions become effective July 1, 2010. The contractual language also provides that the new vacation accrual rates shall take effect starting the pay period immediately following the pay period that includes the date the Department of Administrative Services processes and approves the employee’s request.
