LA County Pharmacist Update

May 3, 2017

As some of you may know, UAPD has been partnering with SEIU Local 721 on several County issues.  One of which is the bully boss campaign.  We have met in protected forums with Dr. Christina Ghaly and other DHS-HR staff to discuss incidents where front line staff felt bullied or harassed by their supervisors.  The meetings have taken place at County facilities including Olive View and MLK Outpatient Center.

Following these forums, there has been removal or reassignment of some pharmacy managers, where their behavior has been found to be too egregious to tolerate.

UAPD in LA County Looking Forward…

May 3, 2017

The County of Los Angeles provides services to the over 10 million residents who call Los Angeles County home. With more than 35 departments and 200 commissions, the County operates one of the largest local government organizations in the world. Given the size of this County, it is imperative that UAPD position itself strategically if we are to be successful moving forward.

It is therefore never too early to start gearing up for negotiations for new collective bargaining agreements, to replace those that will be expiring in the upcoming months. We will be faced with a lot of challenges and uncertainties, for example: will the county lose federal dollars? How do we make up any loss in revenue? How do we continue to deliver quality care? What are the alternatives? UAPD members will have the opportunity to engage and participate in the process to solve some of these critical issues.
