Los Angeles police union can create comp delivery system


Officers with the Los Angeles Police Protective League will be able to create their own alternatives for workers compensation benefit delivery and dispute resolution under a collective bargaining agreement with the City of Los Angeles, the California Division of Workers’ Compensation announced Wednesday.

The division approved the labor-management carve-out agreement between the two parties, a move that covers an estimated 10,000 union members, the division said in a statement.

By law, parties can participate in a carve-out program following approval of the administrative director of the Division of Workers' Compensation.

There are 57 active labor-management carve-out agreements in California, including 27 that cover public safety unions, 21 in the construction industry and nine in other industries, according to the statement.
