OEC workers successfully voted to unionize in August 2019. OEC leadership voluntarily recognized the union and began work with OEC Workers United, represented by SEIU-affiliate Chicago and Midwest Regional Joint Board (CMRJB) Workers United, on its first collective bargaining agreement. OEC and OEC Workers United finalized contract negotiations and ratified a three-year agreement on June 13, 2020.
