Recently, many of us received a memo from Public Works management announcing a plan for a full return to the office on May 9 for all Public Works employees.

As our CAPE Bargaining Team meets with County management, we want to show a strong display of unity.

After a long delay and countless requests, on Monday, July 15, CAPE finally received draft Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) from the County of Los Angeles for our bargaining Units. We are now working expeditiously to validate the language – particularly the salary numbers – so that we can send ballots to CAPE members for Contract Ratification.

Thank you for your continued patience.
