OCEA demands meet and confer with County re: Cal/OSHA revisions

Dear OCEA Member, 

Earlier today, County Executive Officer Frank Kim sent County workers a memorandum via email regarding proposed revisions to Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards. The memorandum contained a description of changes the County intends to implement regarding face coverings, physical distancing, and future requirements applicable to members of the public.

OCEA has notified the County that pursuant to California law it wishes to promptly meet and confer regarding the County’s proposed actions. Click here to read OCEA’s demand letter.

We will keep you updated as we are able to obtain additional information from the County.

The last 15-months have been difficult for public workers who, like you, continued dedicated and professional service to the community in the face of a deadly pandemic. Standing together, we can make sure your workplace rights are protected in a challenging and changing work environment.

In Solidarity,

Charles Barfield
OCEA General Manager
