After six grueling months of bargaining with the state of California, CAPT is pleased to report that a tentative agreement for a new contract (July 1, 2019 - July 1, 2022) was reached Dec. 13 at 3:09 a.m. CAPT’s bargaining team, including the CAPT Board of Directors, Chief Negotiator Ann Lyles and CAPT Legal Counsel Sean Bedrosian, worked diligently with one goal in mind: to improve our contract with enhanced economic benefits, safety, working conditions, professional development, and to preserve critical provisions that enable PTs to strike a balance between their work and personal lives.
Provided here is a summary of the economic/benefit improvements. Detailed contract information, including other key provisions such as Post and Bid, Exchange of Days Off, Mandatory Overtime, etc. will be discussed and explained at member contract ratification meetings at each chapter.
The contract covers everyone within Bargaining Unit 18, both members and non-members have the right to vote and ratify the newly bargained contract. Members, however, have the added benefit of attending ratification meetings to learn detailed contract information directly from their bargaining representatives.
CAPT headquarters will be mailing ballot materials to all addresses on file. If you need to update your address, please call (800) 677-2278 as soon as possible. Keep in touch with your chapter for information and upcoming contract ratification meeting dates.
