Salary and Working Conditions


L.A. County Units 

Before the end of a salary contract term, the CAPE Board of Directors appoints members and representatives to a negotiations team to assess the membership's interests in a successor agreement. The team may request a membership survey, salary comparison studies and a variety of economic reports to justify bargaining demands.

Negotiations teams meet frequently to discuss objectives, outline goals and craft salary and working condition contract bargaining proposals prior to meeting with management representatives.

During negotiations, the CAPE teams and management meet until both sides agree on a successor contract.  Once an agreement is reached, the final contract is called a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This is the contract that governs the majority of terms and conditions of CAPE-represented employees' employment.
