The Los Angeles City Separation Incentive program closed yesterday at 3PM. At this time, the City Administrative Office is reviewing all applications to verify whether or not we reached the 1,300 threshold.

As soon as we get the final numbers we will post an update on the AFSCME District Council 36 website as well as our social media pages. So, stay tuned!

Thank you to everyone who helped negotiate this program as well as everyone who helped us reach out to our members.
