CAPE on Public Employee Pensions

CAPE supports efforts to stop pension spiking and put an end to any cases of abuse in public employee pension systems. However, there is no pension crisis in L.A. County. L.A. County pension benefits are modest, L.A. County employees already contribute to their pension costs, and our members' pensions are adequately funded and responsibly managed by LACERA.

L.A. County is already a model for effective pension reform, thanks to decades of employees and employer working cooperatively in collective bargaining. Local government pension changes SHOULD NEVER be negotiated from Sacramento.
