County Negotiations Update: Which Agency Had a 100% Survey Completion Rate?



Dear OCEA member,

THANK YOU to all OCEA members who completed your 2023 OCEA Negotiations Survey! We had nearly 3,000 members across County agencies let us know what their priorities are at the negotiations table. OCEA members at one County agency even managed to get a 100% survey completion rate—WAY TO GO!

To find out which agency accomplished this impressive achievement, please watch the video above featuring OCEA Assistant General Manager Tim Steed. He also provides a detailed update summarizing the ongoing behind-the-scenes work to interview and select your OCEA negotiations team and further educate members about the process of collective bargaining, your MOU, negotiations procedures and more!
