“Now is the time for LA County to prepare for a potential Coronavirus outbreak.”

Herb Wesson has been a champion for Los Angeles working families for more than 30 years and will be a strong advocate for LA County on the Board of Supervisors.

Great News! CAPE members in the Public Works Department can now apply for and receive a brand new bonus, simply for holding a specific license or certificate.

Here’s how to get our new bonus:

As you may be aware, L.A. County employees had the opportunity to join a lawsuit against the County of Los Angeles for underpaying overtime. Specifically, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) – the Country’s basic wage-and-hour law – describes how the overtime rate must be calculated and in a case known as Flores v. City of San Gabriel, the Federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the FLSA requires that health insurance cash-back payments (the amount of taxable cash you receive in your paycheck if unused to buy benefits in the Choices Plan) must be included in the overtime rate.

CAPE members in a variety of job classes will be receiving bonus pay as a result of the recently ratified salary contracts. Securing the bonuses was a tremendous victory, and CAPE members are justifiably asking when they should expect the bump in their paychecks.

On Friday, October 18, 2019, more than 60 CAPE members and participants attended the CAPE Annual Golf Tournament at the Royal Vista Golf Club in Walnut.

After the tournament, the golfers enjoyed a delightful buffet dinner and awards reception.

Thank you to all the participants and congratulations to all the tournament and raffle winners.

The following are the tournament winners:

CAPE members in all six county units voted overwhelmingly to ratify the salary contract agreements approved by bargaining unit representatives earlier this year. The results of the ratification votes will be reported next to County representatives, triggering an approval vote by the County Board of Supervisors at an upcoming meeting.

Recent efforts by CAPE leaders has significantly curtailed the number of jobs contracted to outside agencies by County executives, mostly at the Department of Public Works, but also at other departments where maintaining institutional memory saves significant resources.
