Our Growing Family: LA County Public Defenders Join AFSCME

Today, the Los Angeles County Employee Relations Commission (ERCOM) approved AFSCME's petition to be the exclusive bargaining representative for Deputy Public Defenders (Grades I-IV) employed by the Office of the Public Defender. 

This means that the public defenders are now officially unionized, and part of the AFSME District Council 36 family, after many long years without labor representation! 

Congratulations to everyone who has been part of this historic organizing effort to bring greater equity and justice to those who fight for the vulnerable each and every day!
