The Ohio Public Employer Labor Relations (OHPELRA) Association is an organization comprised of a cross section of public sector employers. OHPELRA is intended to serve public employers at all levels, including the state, cities, counties, townships, other agencies of local government, colleges and universities, and public schools throughout the State of Ohio.
Our members are mostly full-time employees who represent public employers in labor-relations and human-resources matters, including dealings with labor unions. We also have many members who are attorneys or private consultants serving public employers. OHPELRA thus includes a broad range of public employer representatives from the smallest to the largest jurisdictions who handle a wide range of issues in the labor relations and human resources areas.
