LAPMA Members Ratify Coalition Agreement
Members of the Los Angeles Professional Managers' Association voted overwhelmingly to ratify the Coalition of City Unions' proposed agreement with the City of Los Angeles.
LAPMA members gave their approval to the agreement by a three-to-one margin at a heavily attended general membership meeting on April 7.
One of the reasons members voted to support the agreement was to secure two-party retiree health care for workers and their spouses as a vested benefit in the MOU.
The City has already announced its plan to shift the increased cost of health care on to retirees if this is not approved. The agreement ensures this landmark benefit is protected.
"Furloughs have hurt our ability to provide services to the people of LA. Ratifying this deal allows us to get back to work for our community."--Michael Kantor, Deputy City Engineer
