OEA Members -- Get involved in your union -- Join a committee or caucus! Whether your passion is public speaking or behind-the-scenes organizing, OEA needs your help.  Committees and caucuses are open to all OEA members. Unless otherwise noted, all committee and caucus meetings are held at the OEA Office


OEA's most current Bylaws were for 2001-2002 and CTA requires each chapter to update their bylaws and standing rules every five years. Members interested in joining in this important and necessary work of reviewing the current OEA bylaws and standing rules in order to bring them up-to-date please contact bylaws@oaklandea.org

Cluster Action Team (CAT)

We are committed to making sure there is a Site Rep at every school and to provide you with resources for communication and organizing.
We need more members on the CAT Team to keep the communication going in OEA. Contact us to get involved.


We organize and coordinate all communication for OEA. 

Contract Waiver

This committee reviews and processes requests for contract waivers.

Membership, Benefits and Social

We are updating rosters of members, making sure fee pay members are properly accounted for, and explaining the wonderful benefits that members receive, including legal representation and insurance benefits. Please consider helping our committee! We welcome your participation in becoming more involved to help make the union stronger. As we continue negotiations, it is extremely important that we be able to efficiently contact our own members and know where they are. It is also important that teachers that want full membership benefits have them and have the information to access those tremendous benefits.

We also serve as the OEA Social Committee, organizing regular gatherings of OEA members as well as the annual December Holiday Toy Drive and Site Rep/Retiree Celebration event. This is a busy, active committee. We welcome your participation! 

Political Action Committee (PAC)

OEA has its own PAC (Political Action Committee), which researches local education-friendly politicians and provides the information to members. The Political Action Committee (PAC) is a very specific legal mechanism for collecting and dispersing funds in a campaign. 

Political Involvement Committee (PIC)

The Political Involvement Committee (PIC) is composed of OEA activists who do the actual work of the campaign.
