The Fix LA Coalition, including the Coalition of LA City Unions, faith-based groups and an array of more than two dozen grassroots community organizations, is continuing to fight for a fair contract with the City of Los Angeles.

In a milestone contract victory, the members of AFSCME Local 619 (City of Cerritos employees) have ratified a new 2 year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the City of Cerritos, which includes a 2 percent salary increase for the next two years for all City employees. This is the first wage increase for these workers in 6 years.
