LONG BEACH ASSOCIATION OF ENGINEERING EMPLOYEES

About Us

Long Beach Association of
Engineering Employees

"Welcome!!!"
Welcome to the City of Long Beach Association of Engineering Employees (LBAEE) Website! 

Our Association was formed in 1990 for the purpose of representing the interests of our members when dealing with terms and conditions of employment with our employer, the City of Long Beach.  This includes negotiating our Association’s employee contract, assisting in the negotiations for medical/dental benefits, acquiring disability insurance, resolving grievances, assisting the employee in disciplinary actions, and to promote the importance of our jobs.

The LBAEE is governed by a Board, made up of volunteer engineering related City employees who follow the Association’s adopted Bylaws.  The Board is comprised of four General Officers, a President, a Vice President, an Executive Assistant to the Board , a Treasurer, and several Group Directors who represent different Departments within the City.  The Board is elected by the general membership. Members can participate to a higher level by being elected to a position in the Association.

In May of 2008 the Long Beach Association of Engineering Employees overwhelmingly voted in favor of an agency shop. An Agency Shop for employees represented by the LBAEE means that all non-supervisory and supervisory employees, as a condition of employment, must either join the Association or pay a monthly service fee to the Association for representation services.

All of our members are either in the City of Long Beach’s Bargaining Unit #20 or Bargaining Unit #22 as determined by the Director of Human Resources. Generally, all classified and non-career employees of the City of Long Beach in the following and related fields are members of the Association: Engineers, Inspectors, Technicians, Geologists, Petroleum Engineers, Planners, Environmental Specialists, and Surveyors. 

The LBAEE is the primary group who negotiates on members behalf for salary, benefits, and other conditions of employment.  These are specified in our contract or otherwise known as the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Association and the City of Long Beach.  You may be able to view this document on this website or accessing it on the City of Long Beach website.

Again, I would like to welcome you to the LBAEE website and would like to thank you in advance for your support of our Association. If you have any questions, please contact the representative in your department.
