Social Services Agency

OCEA members in the Social Services Agency are represented by union stewards and a professional staff of labor relations representatives. Standing together, every OCEA member in the Social Services Agency plays a role in achieving better wages, retirement security and fair rights on the job.

The information below is a resource for all OCEA members in the Social Services Agency. Below, you will find a list of stewards and staff representatives for OCEA members assigned to the Social Services Agency. You’ll also find the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which is the negotiated union contract that sets forth the wages, hours and working conditions guiding your employment. And you can also find updates and news from OCEA about what’s happening in your agency and across the County.
