Your Union

MEA is a local, member-owned and independently operated labor organization. We have no ties to national labor unions, and no outside influences to determine how we conduct our business. Members own all of the physical assets, and our money does not leave the San Diego area. Through an elected Board of Directors, our members set policies, make rules and regulations and decide how our budget is spent.

The San Diego Municipal Employees Association (MEA) is dedicated to being a strong and effective advocate for San Diego City employees. MEA is united to improve employees’ standard of living and promote their fair treatment by endeavoring to fulfill MEA’s guiding principles. MEA values diversity of people and opinion, respect for one another and its independence as a union.
