Bargaining Update: May 27, 2021

Our UPSC bargaining team secured five tentative agreements today during negotiations, including clarifying our education leave policies to ensure fairness to all pharmacists no matter our FTE status.

Our team negotiated the addition of clean-up and intent language in five areas covering grievance and arbitration, lead pharmacist position, per diem committment, jury duty and education.

The education article (read the entire contract on MemberLink) was updated with the clarifying definition of “regularly scheduled for 32 hours” as 0.8 FTE and included examples of mandatory certifications. In addition, 0.8 FTEs are now explicitly listed as having a maximum 10-day bank.

Our bargaining team had constructive conversation with management about vacation and other education issues. In addition, we had a charged exchange about managers doing bargaining unit work.
