Enhancing the management of labor relations in the public sector.

About Us

In 1973, management representatives from a small group of cities in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County founded the Southern California Public Labor Relations Council (SCPLRC). In October 1978, SCPLRC was incorporated as a non-profit corporation.

SCPLRC is a diverse management organization comprised of labor relations professionals from cities, counties and special districts located in Southern California. The main purpose of SCPLRC is to enhance the management of labor relations in the public sector by providing a forum for the exchange of information and ideas pertaining to labor relations by fostering collaborative efforts among management representatives from local public agencies in the resolution of labor relations problems.

SCPLRC has a service area that extends from the Pacific Ocean in the west to the state line in the east and from San Diego County in the south to the Kern County line in the north. Since its inception, SCPLRC has grown in size and has increased the services it offers. Today, SCPLRC has a membership of over 90 agencies including counties, cities and special districts.

SCPLRC offers monthly specialized labor relations training/luncheons, roundtable discussions on the status of negotiations, half day workshops, and an annual SCPLRC Conference.

SCPLRC has become one of the largest organizations of its kind in the State of California with a proven track record of providing timely insight into the wide spectrum of labor relations practices.
