Title
Human Resources Department recommending the Board:
1) Adopt and authorize the Chair to sign the negotiated Letter of Agreement (LOA) to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the County of El Dorado (County) and El Dorado County Law Enforcement Management Association (EDCLEMA) representing the Law Enforcement Sworn Management (SM) bargaining unit; and

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
County and EDCLEMA, representing employees in the SM bargaining unit, have an executed MOU for the period of July 1, 2016 - December 31, 2019. When the executed MOU was prepared for adoption, pre-existing language was struck from Article 9, Section 1. Management Leave, subsection 3, which was not consistent with the parties’ agreement. Pre-existing language provided that unused management leave remaining after pay period 26 would be cashed out; the effect of this language was that unused management leave could not roll over from one year to another. Though the agreement between the parties was to remove the cash out provisions, it did not include the removal of language that management leave is to be used by pay period 26 of the year it is credited.

County and EDCLEMA have reached an agreement to amend the MOU to correct the error and affirm that any management leave hours unused by the close of pay period 26 of the year credited are forfeit.

The LOA shall become of full force and effect upon approval and adoption by the Board of Supervisors and shall remain in effect until modified by a successor MOU.
