The OEA Bargaining Boot Camp is an intensive, team-based training that involves learning about and incorporating essential organizing and bargaining concepts as part of the local association’s culture. The training will also provide local-specific financial analysis, health insurance, and contract language assessments.

Each boot camp will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday and conclude by 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. All meals, materials, and overnight lodging (double occupancy) will be provided for each participant. This program is being offered by OEA without cost to the local.

To ensure maximum participation, each offering will be limited to a total of 48 participants, including the local’s OEA Labor Relations Consultant (LRC).

Selection for acceptance into a boot camp will be based on:

  • Willingness and availability of a local’s entire team to participate in the boot camp, and;
  • Expiration of the local’s collective bargaining agreement in the year of participation.

Boot camps will be held in five geographic areas of the state on the following dates and a local can apply to attend any one of the offerings by clicking here.
