Membership Fees/Work & Administrative Dues


OCA Membership is “company” based. There is no limit to the number of employees who may participate in OCA activities.

FEES and DUES paid by OCA members are based on the category (there are 2) into which the member falls.

ACTIVE MEMBER: Any person, partnership or corporation that expends labor hours for the construction of highway, heavy, municipal, utility and site development projects in Ohio.

ASSOCIATE MEMBER: Any person, partnership or corporation who furnishes material, machinery, supplies or services to the contracting industry.

FEES: Membership FEES apply to both ACTIVE and ASSOCIATE members. Membership FEES are company based and inclusive of statewide membership. There are nine OCA chapters around the state; members may elect to participate in chapter activities in any or all OCA chapters, as well as in statewide activities.
   
     ACTIVE MEMBER
     $550 annually (plus DUES - see below)

     ASSOCIATE MEMBER
     $0 - $5 million annual* volume** $550
     Over $5 million - $15 million annual* volume** $750
     Over $15 million annual* volume** $1,000

DUES: DUES apply to ACTIVE members, only. ACTIVE members pay both OCA and OCIA - the industry information arm of OCA - hourly work DUES. ASSOCIATE members DO NOT pay DUES.
     14¢ hourly work DUES for OCA AND
      5¢ hourly work DUES for OCIA

IN ADDITION, per the union agreements, non-members who sign union agreements negotiated by OCA for heavy/highway work also pay:
      8¢ per labor hour for administrative DUES

MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM ANNUAL* DUES:
    OCA - $25,000 maximum annual* DUES and $1,000 annual* minimum
    OCIA - $25,000 maximum annual* DUES with no minimum annual* DUES

First-time ACTIVE members, ask about reduced DUES during your first 12 months of membership that can deliver significant savings as you put OCA membership to the test.

*The OCA membership year begins July 1st and runs through June 30th each year; FEES are pro-rated on the join date and based on OCA’s membership year. DUES are calculated on actual hours worked. Minimum and maximum DUES are based on OCA’s membership year.

** Volume is based upon Ohio business only in the transportation area.
