Some of our members have experienced issues relating to the new MOU contracts regarding the 15 steps. Some departments have handled the new system well, while others have not. Where there have been issues, EAA has filed numerous grievances regarding the proper application of the new step systems. Some of these grievances have gone to arbitration, and I am confident that we will prevail. If you have experienced an issue related to the 15 steps, please contact the Executive Director at 213.620.6920.
