The Ohio Highway Patrol Troopers organization FIGHTS for its retirees! Who fights for OURS?

From John Curry, May 15, 2012
An excerpt from a May 14, 2012 joint memorandum from OSTA (Ohio State Troopers Association) President Larry Phillips and HPRS (Highway Patrol Retirement System) Executive Director Mark Atkeson to their active and retired members:
The Union has stated clearly that its opposition to the HPRS proposed language for incorporation into the Senate bills is driven by its belief that its members, who have by virtue of their service, acquired "vested" pension rights and by virtue of such rights [are] entitled to protection from alteration of the terms of their retirement as such relate to "cost of living provisions" and the "computation of final average salary".
