COVID-19 Updates

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental recommendations, OCEA is taking steps to limit exposure by closing our building until further notice. We will, however, have staff working remotely to service all of our members’ needs as usual, and will continue to evaluate the situation as it develops.

We therefore recommend that members contact OCEA by email for questions or inquiries. As a reminder, OCEA members can contact their Labor Relations Representative, Benefits Staff, Velece Staff and Special Events through our website at ocea.org/contact.
