Recently, UAPD met in a Joint Labor-Management Committee to discuss the dissolution of the Matrix. What was the Matrix? In short, the Matrix was the chain-of-command which Bargaining Unit 16 doctors had to follow at Patton State Hospital.
Doctors had been reporting to a local administrator rather than through a medical chain-of-command or the Chief Medical Officer. Representatives Christopher Ige and Glynnis Golden-Ortiz, along with the Patton membership, were instrumental in effecting this change.
As of March 1, 2019, the Matrix has been abolished.
