The Burbank City Employees Association (BCEA) came into existence in October of 1939. In June of 1940 the BCEA was incorporated. The primary objective was to secure Civil Service status for all permanent City employees. Representatives of the BCEA were elected from all departments within the City. The beginning of collecting discussing and resolving problems in the work place were started.
The BCEA is one of five bargaining unions in the City. We are the largest, incorporating more than 750 employees we bargain for and/or represent each day. We cover all the clerical, trades and general employees - over 125 different classifications. We are the only organization that represents its members in bargaining with management for wages, fringe benefits and much more.
Your Right to Representation
If you are called into a meeting with management, you have the RIGHT to know the subject of the meeting. If you REASONABLY BELIEVE the meeting could lead to discipline, you have the RIGHT to representation. You MUST ask for that right. Management does NOT have to offer it to you. You have the right to consult with your union representative before the meeting. When in doubt contact your steward.
We have many years of experience in getting results for our members. We provide on-the-job protection, salary increases, upgraded fringe benefits, grievance representation and continue to pursue improved retirement benefits.
