State physicians, dentists, ratify tentative labor agreement

Editor's note: The links to the UAPD tentative agreement and the summary of the agreement have been repaired.

The Union of American Physicians and Dentists announced on twitter and on its website that Bargaining Unit 16 members who cast ballots "have voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Tentative Agreement reached with the State on June 25, 2010."

The Thursday announcements provided no details about the vote.

The agreement now goes to the state Legislature for ratification in the Assembly and Senate. It would take effect upon signature by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
