The Trust’s mission is to deliver
high-quality benefits and services to Union represented public employees, to enrich their overall quality of life and to enhance their appreciation of their respective Unions.
What we do
The Union Benefits Trust offers dental, vision and life insurance benefits, Working Solutions and the legal service plan to approximately 36,600 Union-represented State employees.
The Trust is the product of several years of work by the Unions serving the State employees. OCSEA, the largest Union for Ohio’s State employees, established the Trust through collective bargaining in its 1992-1994 agreement with the State. The Unions believed that they could administer benefits more effectively and efficiently for Union-represented State employees, and the Trust today is proof of that belief. learn more
