AFSCME Local 685 was founded in 1945 by a group of World War II veterans who sought to create an outstanding Probation Department for Los Angeles County. The new Union was granted a charter by AFSCME. In 1969, under the strong leadership of John Seferian and Henry Fiering, the union won an election that made Local 685 the recognized certified majority representative of all employees in the County Probation Series and, later on, in the Detention Series.

Local 685 has been charged with, and has always maintained, the responsibility of protecting the rights of its employees within the County Probation Department. The union negotiates, on behalf of its membership, all matters concerning wages, hours, benefits, and working conditions with the Department. Since 1969, Local 685 has successfully negotiated every new contract with Los Angeles County political and bureaucratic leaders. It has effectively represented its members in every aspect of dealing with the Department.
