A better analogy would be the OPPA is similar to the OSSTF, the teacher's union.
The OSSTF may speak on behalf of its membership (but not necessarily individual members) and support a particular candidate or party. But the OSSTF does not represent the view of the School Boards which employ its members.
Part of the confusion is that the union shares a very similar name to the employer. (OPPA/OPP)
