UAPD State Bargaining Update #1: Kicking Things Off

February 21, 2020
 

UAPD kicked off State bargaining on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.  Introductions of both teams, ground rules, and the February bargaining schedule were established during this first meeting. 

In an unprecedented accomplishment, UAPD was successful in increasing the bargaining committee representatives from 5 to 7, giving our members an increased voice at the table.  Leading the UAPD team is Doug Chiappetta, Executive Director. Doug wasted no time laying out the Union’s top priorities for our doctors.

Priority issues:

  • Wages and Wage Parity
  • Respect and Dignity in the Workplace 
  • Professional Autonomy 
  • PEPRA benefit augmentation
  • Contracting Out 

Your bargaining committee is diverse, vocal, experienced, and energized to bargain the best contract, which will address all of the key issues from the survey responses you provided. 

In the next few weeks union representatives, bargaining committee members, and your colleagues will be distributing campaign materials for you to post at your workplace.  Our campaign theme is “ONE TEAM – ONE FIGHT!”.  Only in unity can we win a strong and fair contract. Let’s spread the energy that was started this week to all of our members in each state facility.
