Why I Joined

“Working for LA County is a privilege, but with such a large employer I can see how sometimes employees’ good work may go unnoticed.  I joined CAPE because having strong representation is the surest way to get the respect we deserve as LA County professional employees.”

“My mother returned to the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 10 years, she and other federal employees were represented by their union multiple times and I got to hear every struggle and triumph she experienced. I joined CAPE immediately after securing my first job after college because I wanted to be part of an organization that already had a system in place to promote dignity, competence and activism. Thanks for the inspiration mom.”

“I briefly left county service for the private sector and saw the need for a strong labor union. We got little respect or support. When I returned to the county I immediately rejoined CAPE. I know that our labor union fights for us!”

“As professional public servants, we are all working toward the same goals. I joined CAPE because I understand the need for County professional employees to have a STRONG, UNITED VOICE on the issues that impact the vital public services we provide.”
