The UAPD Bargaining Committee (Drs. Anand Chabra, Richard Ehling, John Herbert, Manuel Pena, and Zachary Plaut) urged members to vote YES and ratify this agreement, which they did. Having been negotiated over two months, this four year agreement contains significant wage and equity increases, along with benefit improvements, for all members. Under this contract, members will see a wage increase of 14.5%-18.5% (depending on seniority) in the first year alone.
