What is SLOCEA?

In 1947, SLOCEA was founded by a group of county employees who felt an organization was needed to help improve the salaries, benefits, and working conditions of all San Luis Obispo County employees. These SLOCEA “pioneers” negotiated for many of the benefits that we take for granted today. Among these are a civil service system, a 40-hour/5-day workweek, a County retirement plan, and significant gains that we now consider basic to employment with the County.
