Contract Negotiations Update: August 5th

Attention Union Sisters and Brothers,

I’m pleased to report that all Engineers & Architects Association (EAA)  MOUs (1, 19, 20 and 21) have been red lined and reviewed as of August 1st.  The final drafts of the agreements between EAA and the CAO have been submitted to the City Attorney for review as required.  A final review by EAA and the CAO of all four EAA MOUs has been completed. A review by the City Attorney has been completed and all four EAA MOUs have been signed off by all parties. All four EAA MOUs have been transmitted to the Personnel and Animal Welfare Committee (PAW) for their review and recommended approval ( After approval by PAW Committee, the MOUs will be forwarded to the full LA City Council for review and approval. It is anticipated that the MOUs will go before the full City Council for final approval on August 23rd or August 27th.

Once approved by the City Council, your 2.9% increase should be effective on September 15th and you should see the increase on your October 9th pay check. It is anticipated that your October 28, 2018 retroactive pay will be received on a separate check some time in November 2019.

“Strength in Unity”

In solidarity,
