AB 722 Safeguards Jobs of Unionized Physicians

Dr. Milton Lorig, a former physician, AHS member, and member of the Union of American Physicians and Dentists (UAPD), a co-sponsor of AB 722, said, “Privatization, or subcontracting of public services, can be a deceptive practice. In healthcare settings, over reliance on subcontracting can result in a gradual decline of quality of care. This is why we are so thankful to Assemblymember Bonta for her steadfast commitment to protecting our jobs. We also appreciate the legislature for their support and Governor Newsom for signing this important bill.”
