Stanford Residents Get 21% Raise in First Union Contract

Newly unionized resident physicians and fellows at Stanford Health Care in California have reached their first contract with the health system, resulting in a 21% pay increase over 3 years for about 1500 physicians. The deal also includes paid rideshares, fertility benefits, and a new grievance process. All house staff will have access to app-based transportation services and a $20,000 fertility benefit package. This comes after a unionization effort in response to a vaccine debacle in 2020. The Committee of Interns and Residents union calls the contract a precedent for residents, fellows, and patients across the country. Stanford Health Care stated that the new agreement reinforces their commitment to house staff’s education and training.
