Workers Who Could be Impacted: Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) Employees
Agenda item 3-D: General Salary Adjustment and Memoranda of Understandings
The Executive Director of the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) sent a Letter to the Board of Supervisors entitled “Approve Two Memoranda of Understanding With The Laborers’ International Union Of North America Local 777 And A General Salary Adjustment.”
The Letter provided in part, “The LACDA has a total of 537 employees, comprised of 314 non-represented employees and 223 employees represented by the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) in two bargaining units – the Maintenance Worker Unit and Program Specialist Unit. The existing Memorandum of Understanding with LIUNA expired on December 31, 2020. The LACDA has been actively engaged in negotiations with LIUNA to secure a successor MOU for both bargaining units for the 2021 calendar year and recently secured a tentative agreement pending ratification by membership. The General Salary Adjustment (GSA) will be applied to all represented and non-represented LACDA employees… The GSA is proposed for implementation as a single 2% adjustment retroactive to January 1, 2021.”
Therefore, the Letter “recommends approval of two one-year Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) between the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) and the Laborers’ International Union of North America Local 777 (LIUNA), and a General Salary Adjustment (GSA) for all employees.”
Specifically, the Letter “recommend[s] that the board: 1. Approve and authorize the Executive Director or his designee to execute, and if necessary, amend two one-year MOUs between the LACDA and LIUNA for both the Maintenance Worker and Program Specialist bargaining units, to be effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. 2. Approve a GSA of two percent (2%) to the LACDA’s Salary Schedule to be applied to all represented and non-represented employees effective January 1, 2021.”
Now, agenda item 3-D of the July 13, 2021 Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting calls for the Board to consider the Letter.
We hope these updates are helpful to you.
