Patient Navigator 2 Accretion, Welcome and Bargaining Prep Town Hall

Wednesday, September 14

12:00 PM

Meeting will be held over Zoom

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the link to join the webinar.

As a result of a recent ruling by the State Public Employment Relations Board (PERB), work performed by the Patient Navigator 2 (PN2 Non-clinical) shares a community of interest with the CX Bargaining Unit and is now covered by the current contract as represented by Teamsters Local 2010. Now that you are represented, your wages, hours and working conditions will be negotiated through the collective bargaining process. The CX contract is set to expire August 31, 2022, and successor negotiations are currently underway.

More than 140 Patient Navigators at the University of California medical centers across the State will immediately begin to receive collective bargaining, grievance and arbitration, layoff seniority and preferential rehire rights, as well as contracted benefits and workplace protections provided through our CX Contract.  

Wage tables and pay step placement need to be bargained for you and your coworkers with UC Labor Relations, which is scheduled to begin in October 2022. We will conduct a bargaining survey to formulate our pay proposals and will assemble a Bargaining Team comprised of members and Union Representatives. Make sure to participate—we want to know your concerns and priorities.

All Patient Navigator 2s are encouraged to sign their membership application today so they may participate in this process, and so we can show the support of our members while we bargain.

Only Union members may participate in the negotiations process, including bargaining surveys, Bargaining Team elections, and ratifying our contract. Union dues for PN2 members will not be deducted until negotiations are complete and we ratify our new wage scales.

Together, we will work to win fair wages, benefits and working conditions. We welcome your participation, first, by becoming a member of our Union. As a full voting member, you will have a say in your contract and in decisions about how our Union operates. You will have the ability to serve your fellow Union members by becoming a steward, Bargaining Team member and/or Union delegate. You can make a difference!

If you cannot make it to the meeting, please contact your Union Representative for next steps.
