What We Do
Join the fight to protect all workers
We are a labor union, formed in 1894, representing more than 5,000 public sector professionals in 40+ departments in the City of Los Angeles. EAA members are essential to the smooth operations of the City, providing some of the City’s most important services. Simply put, without us, the City doesn’t work!
EAA’s diversity of membership, our vast skills, and our presence in nearly every City department makes us #UnionStrong. We work together with our members and City managers to ensure that our voices and priorities are reflected in all worksite policies. EAA strives to uphold integrity, accountability, and transparency.
As a dues-paying member of EAA and IBEW, you can actively participate in the decisions that affect your livelihood. All members receive union-funded benefits, and have access to Members Headquarters (HQ), exclusive events, open meetings, and the right to vote in contract ratification and officer elections.
Meet the Executive Director
As EAA’s Executive Director, I am committed to ensuring quality representation and communication to members, transparency, and inclusion on all union matters, and bringing new and creative ideas to City Hall that reflect the progression of Los Angeles and the needs of our membership.
EAA’s Affiliation with IBEW
In 2013, EAA affiliated with IBEW Local 11 by a vote of the dues-paying membership. Our affiliation enables EAA members to sign up as IBEW members and offers strength in numbers with our brothers and sisters of an internationally recognized union.
