Collective bargaining – a mutual exchange of positions followed by agreement – enables teachers to negotiate a binding written contract with OUSD. This gives us a voice at work and helps ensure that we are treated fairly. We bargain to improve learning and teaching conditions throughout Oakland.
OEA Site Representatives at every school and district department (e.g. nurses or teacher substitutes) are available to help you understand your contractual rights and assist you whenever needed.OEA Contract 2014-2017
