UAPD Proposals Implemented at DHCS for RAFT Program

April 25, 2019

In January, CAASD members notified us that employees were being asked to sign a new RAFT agreement. In response, the UAPD reached out to the department. The department replied by providing an update with the following changes, many of which are proposals that UAPD made back in August of last year: 

1. Expectations were removed from the RAFT agreements 
2. Only employees who perform telework are required to sign the RAFT agreement 
3. The department removed the term “agreement” from the form 

If you do not telework and you are being asked to sign a RAFT agreement, please contact your union representative and provide details.

CPOE Complaints: How They Work and How UAPD Can Help

In the last few months, there has been an increase in County Policy of Equity (CPOE) Complaints filed against our members.  It’s important to know your rights as a Union member when you are called by an investigator. Before you schedule that meeting, please contact UAPD.  You have a right to have a union representative be with you during the investigation meeting. 

If you’re unfamiliar with the CPOE, we now have a guide available. To learn more about the CPOE and how it works click here

Patton State Hospital Unhinges Their “Matrix”

March 25, 2019

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.
