A Message from the CAPE Board of Directors
Welcome to the California Association of Professional Employees' website. We created this site to assist you in learning more about CAPE, the services and benefits we provide, and the outstanding work of our dedicated members.
CAPE represents a diverse group of more than 2700 professional employees of the County of Los Angeles at several county departments including Public Works, the Assessor, Regional Planning, Internal Services, Parks & Recreation, the CEO, and Beaches & Harbors, as well as the County Sanitation Districts. Together, they perform a wide variety of vital public services that support the nearly 10 million residents of LA County.
For nearly five decades, CAPE has provided our members with steadfast representation in the areas of collective bargaining of work contracts and fringe benefits, grievances, job-related legal counsel, health insurance, public relations, legislative advocacy, and more. In the current caustic political climate, we are more dedicated than ever to ensuring the continuation of these services.
