Memorandum of Understanding
Employee Labor Negotiation Process

Important Announcement

In accordance with state law, the City of Beverly Hills participates in labor negotiations (also known as collective bargaining) with its nine employee associations. The result of the negotiations process are written agreements or contracts reached between the City and the City employee associations. These agreements are commonly referred to as Memorandum of Understanding (MOU's). The current MOU's can be accessed at the individual links below. 

In 2014, the Beverly Hills City Council adopted an ordinance outlining the procedure for adopting or amending a MOU between the City and an exclusively recognized employee organization. This procedure was adopted in order to provide additional impartiality and transparency to the collective bargaining process. In an effort to educate the public and provide an opportunity for questions and participation in advance of the commencement of labor negotiations, two Community Meeting forums took place (April 30 and May 13, 2015).

The Community Meetings included an overview of the labor relations process, information on employee compensation and benefits, and a brief overview of the current state of the City's financial picture. The Community Meeting presentations are available below. 

Currently, the City has concluded labor negotiations with seven bargaining units with MOUs that expired in 2015. Per the labor negotiations ordinance, these contracts will be posted two weeks in advance of the meeting in which the City Council will consider adoption.

On Tuesday, February 2, 2016, the City Council will consider the adoption of the proposed Memoranda of Understanding (MOU's) for the City's six miscellaneous associations. Per the labor negotiations ordinance, the proposed MOU's (Final and "Tracked Changes" versions) and Independent Fiscal Analyses are available below (as of Tuesday, January 19, 2016).
