Labor & Employment Law


OCA represents all contractors in the industry - union and non-union, large shops and small shops. Membership puts an expert in Labor and Employment on your team. You'll find help with interpretation of federal and state regulations, collective bargaining agreement administration, employee grievances and arbitration issues, and pre-job planning and scheduling is just a phone call away.

OCA union members qualify to be part of the Labor Relations Division (LRD), which leads the way for heavy/highway contractors in Ohio by negotiating fair, stable, and workable collective bargaining agreements with the construction trade unions. Membership in the LRD not only allows eligible members to engage in labor negotiations, but also adds to the strength and conviction of numbers represented at the bargaining table.

The following resources are made available to OCA members. For more or additional information, please contact Mark Potnick at OCA.
