Learn how you can protect yourself, your community, and your patients from the novel coronavirus.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of millions of working people and our families, and CAPE is working tirelessly to limit the impact of this crisis on our health and livelihoods.

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.

After more than a year of bargaining, the Coalition of County Unions (CCU) has reached a Tentative Agreement (T/A) with the County of Los Angeles on a successor Fringe Benefit Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This round of negotiations was particularly challenging because of the County’s mandate to lessen liability associated with the Flores v. City of San Gabriel, (9th Cir. 2016) case, specifically by reducing the cash back members received from the Choices plan.
