OMA Asks Governor to Address Members’ Concerns

This week, OMA President Eric Burkland sent two separate letters to the DeWine-Husted administration to address separate concerns raised by OMA members in the midst of state actions to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The first letter requested the administration’s support in designating all Ohio manufacturing facilities, supply chains and their employees as “essential infrastructure” and “essential businesses.” The letter comes as there have been many well-intentioned actions in other parts of the country that have adversely impacted the supply chain.

The second letter suggested clarification to the Ohio Department of Health’s recent restaurant closure order as it relates to consumption of food in on-site cafeterias and breakrooms within manufacturing facilities. 3/19/2020
