Court negotiations site visit recap for Oct. 1, 2019

Dear OCEA Court member:

We have held two site visits to update you and your coworkers on the status of contract negotiations with the Court. We have four scheduled bargaining sessions remaining before our current contract expires on Oct. 24. The dates are Oct. 3, 9, 16 and 23.

Take a few moments and click here to view a brief video recap from the North Justice Center visit yesterday and bring any questions you may have to the next session.

As these sessions progress, it's more important than ever that you and your co-workers are kept up to date. I want to thank Court workers who attended today's briefing at Central Justice Center.  The next site visit is tomorrow, Oct. 2 at LJC. There will be three half-hour sessions from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. You only need to attend one of them. On Friday, Oct. 4, we will be at Harbor Court followed by West Court on Monday, Oct. 7. Lunch will be provided so please RSVP to

I will return for follow-up briefings after the bargaining sessions take place. Click here for dates. 

I look forward to seeing you at the various Court locations.

In Solidarity,

Charles Barfield, Lead Negotiator
OCEA General Manager
