LAPPL declares impasse with City of LA over labor contract
The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) has declared an impasse in contract negotiations with the City of Los Angeles.
The announcement at a news conference on the steps of City Hall was particularly significant because labor impasses typically are called for by management or municipalities, rather than labor organizations.
In July, more than 6,500 LAPD officers voted and rejected the City's contract offer. Although the League agreed to continue negotiations with the City, more recent contract talks have also failed as the bargaining has become regressive.
