In the Fall of 2010, unrepresented County employees with a vision met to discuss the idea of representing themselves and becoming recognized by the County as an organization. As a result the Sacramento County Administrative Professionals Association, SCAPA, was formed. The vision was to secure a better future for the unrepresented group who historically had no voice in the County or at the negotiation table and had endured massive layoffs and furlough. In the Spring of 2011 employees voted to be represented by the Sacramento County Administrative Professional Association (SCAPA).
On April 26, 2011, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors recognized SCAPA as the exclusive representative for 64 employee classifications and over 300 members. Soon afterward, SCAPA signed their first contract with Sacramento County and completed the formation of its Board.
Since then SCAPA has represented members in multiple meet-and-confer sessions, hearings, and disciplinary matters. SCAPA also employed a legal firm with quality experience in labor issues.
We believe in the future of Sacramento County and its employees. We are loyal to the values of our members and to the people of this County. We will always fight for fairness and know what we do for our members is of enormous importance.
