Due to the strength and unity of UAPD NEVHC members, the midterm bargaining team won the establishment of a new salary scale for providers. The comprehensive grid incorporates substantial salary increases for all UAPD members at NEVHC, ranging from 9% to 23% cumulatively.
The UAPD team worked hard on this, meeting regularly, often weekly, with management for the past several months on behalf of all members. This tremendous achievement was accomplished by a diverse group of members working together, as a team, on unpaid time outside of their clinic hours. This group of remarkable providers is committed to ensuring just and fair working conditions and compensation, while equally committed to always providing the best, safest patient care.
This historic achievement is remarkable not only because it represents an unprecedented mid-contract salary increase for every classification, but because it establishes a salary scale for the first time at NEVHC. The salary scale is based on years of clinical experience.
