Dear Mr. Groh,
Pursuant to the provisions of Government Code Section 3523, enclosed are the State’s initial proposals to reopen negotiations in regards to the current collective bargaining agreement for Bargaining Unit 16 (BU 16), Union of American Physicians and Dentists, between the State and the Union of American Physicians and Dentists (UAPD).
The State employer is prepared to begin negotiations with UAPD BU 16 on a successor contract anytime after the sunshine process is complete.
As in previous years, the employer reserves the right to make additional proposals and will invite public review and comment at that time.

State Sunshine Collective Bargaining Proposals For Inclusion in the Agreement with the Union of American Physicians and Dentists

In recognition of the Governor’s proposed 2013/14 budget and the State’s fiscal deficit, the State desires to negotiate contract provisions that are fiscally responsible and that will achieve improved efficiencies within State government. The State is especially interested in any concept that reduces employer costs or achieves fiscal savings to the State. The State will incorporate the legislation, Assembly Bill 340, which established the Public Employee’s Pension Reform Act of 2013 into successor agreements.
The employer recognizes that the UAPD contract expires July 1, 2013 and is prepared to negotiate any and all provisions of such contract for inclusion in a successor agreement. Further, the employer will consider any issue that is within scope for inclusion in a successor contract.
