Resident Physician Agreement Negotiations

Negotiations are currently underway for a new Resident Physician Agreement.

Remember, the existing Resident Physician Agreement remains in effect until a new Agreement is finalized. This means that PARA members are not without an Agreement – all the provisions and protections in the current Agreement continue until a new Agreement is ratified.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the PARA office at
