UAPD members in Los Angeles County Bargaining Unit 324 (Physicians) have voted overwhelmingly in favor of approving the Tentative Agreement reached in January, with 96% of the votes in favor of ratification. In total, salary and benefits will increase by as much as 15% over the next 18 months.
The terms of the new agreement will go into effect pending approval by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Once the County reaches a Tentative Agreement with BU 325 (Psychiatrists and Dentists), the County Supervisors will review and vote on both agreements. Because the first pay increase under this agreement is retroactive to December 1, 2013, physicians will not lose money while waiting for Supervisor approval. UAPD will update members once the Supervisors have acted.
