Meet your UET trustees: Eddie Parks

“I strongly feel that the OCSEA Union Education Trust is the best thing that has happened to OCSEA members in the last 10 years,” Parks says. “It gives every member a chance to better him or herself by providing a way for members to go back to school for a degree or just to take courses to help them move up the career ladder.”

“I would encourage every member to take advantage of this opportunity. This is a great benefit that cannot be overlooked by our members.”


Eddie Parks is the OCSEA vice president, a role he has held since 2003. He is an energy specialist for the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and a member of Franklin Chapter 2500. Parks has been active in the union for 20 years.

As vice president, Parks serves on the AFSCME National Professional Advisory Committee. He also chairs the OCSEA Education and Professional Committee.

Parks has served as chapter president, vice president of District 6 Council, chief steward, a member of the state board of directors and chair of the Judicial Internal Affairs Committee.
