February Membership Numbers

As of the February 2019 field report, OSEA had 139 dues-paying chapters representing 22,415 employees, including 15,535 members and a statewide membership rate of 69.3 percent. There are 91 chapters on track to receive a Membership Incentive Program (MIP) check at the end of the fiscal year: 17 chapters so far qualify for a 10 percent incentive, 42 for 5 percent and 32 for 3 percent.

We designed MIP to encourage chapter leaders to take an active role in promoting the union through membership drives and one-on-one conversations.

If your chapter wants to conduct a membership drive, click the link to email OSEA Director of Organizing Richard Ramirez or call 800-252-6732.

The incentive can be used in any way authorized by the chapter’s governing documents. Some ideas for using the money include funding membership drives, chapter-building events, emergency assistance and scholarship programs, as well as sending delegates to Conference.

The incentive will be paid before May 31, 2019, and the chapter will be notified once the payment has been processed.

The chapter’s achievement will also be recognized at our annual Conference in June.

The current numbers can be found here.
