​Contract Negotiations Update

 In October of 2014, the University of Washington Housestaff Association (UWHA) was certified as the labor union and exclusive bargaining representative for the majority of residents and fellows in the UW School of Medicine (UW SOM) and in the UW School of Dentistry (UW SOD). The UWHA Union Negotiations Team includes residents and fellows from across the UW system, and the UW Graduate Medical Education (GME) Negotiations Team is well represented by faculty, hospital, and SOM/SOD leadership. This is the first time UW medical and dental residents and fellows have bargained collectively. Access the resources below for updates as the negotiations progress.
