County of Santa Clara and Valley Physicians Group Reach Tentative Agreement; Avoid a Strike

San Jose, CA—The County of Santa Clara and the Valley Physicians Group (VPG), the union representing the county’s employed physicians, podiatrists, and dentists, released the following statement on a tentative agreement that avoid a strike:

The County of Santa Clara and the Valley Physician Group reached a tentative agreement this evening on a new contract. The physicians strike, scheduled for November 1 will not proceed, and the tentative agreement will be presented for a vote of approval to the County Board of Supervisors and VPG’s membership.

The parties look forward to focusing their efforts on the shared commitment to provide the highest quality care to the patients we serve.  As we did during the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to deliver the excellent healthcare that all members of our community need and deserve.  We are committed to working together to tackle a number of difficult challenges that all those who provide health care in this nation face, especially those who serve a safety net population.

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center’s three hospitals and extensive clinic system provide care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Our health system is essential to our community’s health and is a shining example of what a publicly owned and operated system achieves when everyone works together.
