Oakland Unified desires to provide employees, community and partners timely information on collective bargaining with our employee unions.
OUSD's office of LaborManagement & Employee Relations (LMER)leads our bargaining effort and is currently in active negotiations with our teachers' union, the Oakland Education Association (OEA). At its September 27, 2012 meeting, the Board of Education summarized its direction to staff regarding bargaining with OEA (see video excerpt below).
The following links provide additional information on bargaining. You may also subscribe to the LMER Bargaining Update Blog to receive regular email updates on the progress of bargaining efforts.
