Memorandums of Understanding


Labor Agreements (MOUs)

Many City of Santa Barbara employees are represented by labor unions. The links below take you to the MOUs (Memoranda of Understanding) which are the labor agreements with these unions. Click on the union to see the MOU covering employees represented by that union. The Management Performance and Compensation Plan for unrepresented managers is also included. Unit 16 and Unit 5 are confidential units which are not represented by the union, but which receive many of the same salaries and benefits as similarly situated represented employees.
