The collective bargaining agreement with the 444-member Law Enforcement Management Unit was approved without comment and may yet be subject to modification before formal implementation.

The compact largely replicates agreements approved in the last four months with other unions, including the Riverside Sheriffs’ Association and the Riverside County Deputy District Attorneys’ Association.

The LEMU primarily represents individuals in supervisorial positions at the rank of lieutenant and above within the sheriff’s department and equivalent ranks in the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.

The prior LEMU collective bargaining agreement expired in December.
