State Contract Goes into Effect

May 3, 2017

Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 131, the bill containing the UAPD contract for State Bargaining Unit 16.  Now that the UAPD contract has been approved by membership, the Legislature, and the Governor, it will be in effect now through July 1, 2020. 

All pay increases in the new contract are effective starting May 1, 2017.  Payroll implementation is expected to take several months.  Once the State completes the payroll implementation process, all doctors will receive payments retroactive to May 1, 2017. 

You can read the summary of the entire agreement here.  You can download the summary of the economic agreements here.

UAPD and Santa Cruz County to Discuss Compensation Incentives

May 3, 2017

On May 5, UAPD and Santa Cruz County teams will meet for the first time to discuss policies for the compensation incentives that go into effect this July 1.  Doctors will become eligible to receive a Quality Incentive of up to 5% of their base hourly rate, and a Productivity Incentive of up to 10% of their base hourly rate. The policies will standardize the elements for earning the incentive. Elements such as availability for patient visits, staff support and administrative time will determine the amount of the Productivity Incentive. The Quality Incentive shall be based on progress notes, standards for psychotropic medication, peer reviews and EHR standards. 

Once the UAPD team feels we have made sufficient progress, a general membership meeting to discuss this topic will be called.  In the meantime, feel free to contact Albert Munoz with questions or comments (amunoz@uapd.com).

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.

More Washington Providers Join UAPD

April 18, 2017

We would like to congratulate the providers at MultiCare Legacy Urgent Care Centers who voted by an overwhelming margin to join UAPD. By a 43-7 vote, Legacy providers sent a resounding message that they want collective bargaining rights and a voice in providing care to patients.

Now begins the process of better understanding the specific priorities of Legacy providers so we can start contract negotiations as soon as possible. In the next week, Legacy providers will receive a bargaining survey that will help us evaluate their concerns on compensation, working hours, benefits, and other issues.

UAPD is excited to begin preparing to negotiate a contract for Legacy providers, and will continue working to unionize providers at MultiCare and other institutions.
