OMA Board Reaffirms Need to Protect Employers’ Rights

Earlier this week, the OMA board of directors held its Q4 meeting at the OMA’s headquarters in Columbus, with directors attending both in person and virtually. Among the key actions taken by the board was a unanimous vote to oppose OSHA’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on private employers, as well as state legislation (House Bill 218) that would restrict private employers’ workplace safety options during the pandemic.

The vote reaffirmed the organization’s previous positions on both matters.

Directors also heard from Dr. Ned Hill, professor of economic development at The Ohio State University, who presented his economic outlook for the coming year. The presentation examined recent federal activity, as well as the ongoing supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. 12/7/2021
