In accordance with state law, the City of Beverly Hills participates in labor negotiations (also known as collective bargaining) with its employee associations. The result of the negotiations processes are written agreements or contracts reached between the City and the City employee associations. These agreements are commonly referred to as Memoranda of Understanding (MOU's). The current MOU's can be accessed at the individual links below.
There are nine represented employee associations within the City. The City is currently in multi-year agreements with the Firefighters’ Association and the six miscellaneous (non-safety) employee associations. The Memorandum of Understanding with the Police Management Association (Police Captains and Police Lieutenants) expired in October of 2016 and negotiations are ongoing.
The City concluded labor negotiations with the Police Officers’ Association (Police Sergeants, Police Officers and Pre-Service Police Officers) at the end of 2016. Per the City’s Labor Negotiations Ordinance, the newly negotiated contract was posted two weeks in advance of the meeting in which the City Council considered adoption (Tuesday, February 7, 2017).
