UAPD Members in Los Angeles County Bargaining Unit 325 (Dentists and Psychiatrists) overwhelmingly ratified a agreement reached by the negotiating team on February 20, 2014. The 18 month agreement includes three across-the-board pay increases of 2% each. In addition, psychiatrist pay will now follow the physician pay scale, which has 20 steps instead of 13. The agreement also provides legal representation to those responding to Medical and Dental Board inquires, and enhances health benefit plans. In total, the value of the salary and benefits of BU 325 members will increase between 6% and 16% over the 18 months of this agreement.
