Since 1937, OCEA’s Board and staff have developed goals and bargaining proposals to achieve more for our members. The more members we have, the greater our strength is. Through our unity, we have accomplished great things, including improved working conditions, better wages and retirement security.

Nearly 18,000 employees in Orange County have taken this important step. Our union is stronger when you join your co-workers as an OCEA member.


As an OCEA member, you can:

Make a difference
OCEA members can vote on contracts, receive representation on work-related problems, provide input during bargaining, vote in OCEA elections and become an OCEA leader. Members can join labor management committees, unit executive committees or become an OCEA steward or Board member.


Select supplemental benefits
OCEA offers a variety of excellent dental, vision, term life and disability plans, which are paid by payroll deduction. These benefits are administered by the OCEA Health and Welfare Trust.


Take advantage of discounted tickets and classified listings
OCEA members can buy discounted tickets to movies, local theme parks, attractions and a variety of other events. OCEA members also receive discounts on local goods and services and post to our members-only classified listings.
