Teachers in Ohio were always promised a simple Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) upon retirement. It is only through a COLA that retired teachers can keep up with inflation. Many of Ohio's teachers teach in rural areas and retire with very modest pensions. They rely heavily on their promised and earned COLA. The State Teacher Retirement System (STRS) has broken their promise to Ohio's retirees.
Petition Reaches Over 10,000 Signatures, Keep it Rolling!
A thank you for signing and supporting Ohio's teachers. For those who are Ohio STRS members, don't forget to join our Facebook group: Ohio STRS Member Only Forum. Our goal is to restore the cost-of-living-adjustment which will so drastically impact the financial future of Ohio's teachers. Why would anyone enter teaching when having a modest cost-of-living-adjustment is in doubt?
The best way to assure teachers they will receive a modest cost-of-living-adjustment upon retirement is to garner as many signatures as possible for our petition; www.restoreourcola.com
For every 100 signatures a push notice is generated to Ohio's legislators. It was due to legislative action, that STRS now has total control of teacher's COLA. Each petition signature inches teachers closer to their COLA being restored; especially now that STRS can no longer claim a valid financial reason to withhold their hard earned money. Again, anyone in the public can sign so try to obtain as many signatures as possible.
