Los Angeles County And Union Leaders Reach Major Agreement

Supervisor Don Knabe, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, announced a major agreement today regarding several months of negotiations with the labor unions that represent County employees.

Under the agreement, every single County union and bargaining unit has agreed to a two-year, no change extension of their current contracts. The extensions include no cost-of-living increases or salary increases. The County’s union partners represent nearly 90-percent of the approximately 101,000 County employees.

"Our union partners stepped up and recognized the shared sacrifice we are all in right now," said Supervisor Knabe. "Los Angeles County is in difficult financial times, between diminishing tax revenue from the local economy and round after round of funding hits from the State of California. We are all in this together as we weather this economic storm."
