Tentative agreement reached!

  • Updates

After our federal mediation session on 12/6, your bargaining team is excited to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with SHC management at the bargaining table.

What is a tentative agreement?

A tentative agreement (TA) is a proposed collective bargaining agreement that has not yet been ratified (approved) by a union vote. Our union will hold a ratification vote, and if a majority vote “yes”, then this tentative agreement will become our official collective bargaining agreement.  To vote on ratification, you must be a member! Join here and read the FAQs here.

What’s in the tentative agreement?

Our wins include:
  • A 21% increase in compensation (!!!) over the three years of the contract. This includes:
    • Year 1 – 5% raise, $2800 increase to housing stipend ($7,200 -> $10,000), $2,000 meal stipend
    • Year 2 – 5% raise
    • Year 3 – 3% raise, $2000 increase to housing stipend ($10,000 -> $12,000)
  • Ratification bonus + retroactive pay of ~$3,000 total (one-time check in early 2024)
  • Chief residents: additional $200/month
  • Fully-funded rideshare services for fatigue management 
  • Maintenance of essential departmental benefits (current residents are grandfathered in)
  • Fertility benefits: increase from $10,000 to $20,000 lifetime benefits
  • Parental leave: increase from 5 days paid leave to 6 weeks paid leave (with PFL) for non-pregnant parent
  • $50,000 annual stipend for a resident wellness committee
  • Grievance and arbitration process
  • and more
  • (Our healthcare benefits are preserved!)
This means that a PGY1 starting here in 2025 will be earning SIX FIGURES! Even AFTER union dues.

What happens next?
Union members vote on ratification. This is an excellent first contract, and your bargaining team encourage a ‘yes’ vote (again – you must be a member to vote!)
In three years, we will bargain again for a new contract! Stay involved with your union and build it strong so that we can continue to fight for the working conditions that we and our patients deserve.
