Information is power, and OCEA members receive regular email, text and social media updates about workplace issues and news. Many of those emails are archived below.

The campaign to win meaningful improvements for CFS workers continues to make progress. Since the end of 2021, workers and OCEA staff have come together to address long standing issues that were exasperated by the pandemic. Equipped with survey data, worker committees were held by program to identify specific demands by program to remedy the challenges in the workplace.

Court Reporter Update - Legislative Watch

April 25, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives and the impact to our work has been profound. Court Reporters and other frontline workers saw their work change. Different practices, new procedures, and altered work environments became the norm. Despite all of this, Court Reporters throughout California maintained their commitment to professional excellence. Challenging work environments required Court Reporters to go above and beyond to protect the integrity of the record.

HCA Telecommuting Update - March 22, 2022

March 22, 2022

Following HCA’s announcement of their telecommuting policy, we began to hear from OCEA members about issues with policy implementation and inconsistencies across programs. For example, some service areas implemented the policy as early as March 1 and imposed more restrictive limits on the number of telecommuting days available to workers without providing a reason. This arbitrary policy and inconsistent application across the agency created confusion, impacted workplace morale, and was disruptive to HCA employees and their families. We immediately conducted a survey, met with HCA Stewards, and demanded to meet with Dr. Chau and agency representatives to share your concerns.

OCEA Governmental Affairs Update: March 21, 2022

March 21, 2022

We are often told that we should never talk about three things in polite company: religion, money, or politics. Union people discuss money all the time because OCEA members and staff never stop advocating for working families’ economic security. We don’t discuss religion because that’s not our role and we respect each individual’s religious freedom. However, for unions, discussing politics is essential and unavoidable. As the Greek statesman Pericles said, “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”
