San Francisco Chronicle

Several months after negotiations Children’s Hospital Oakland reached an agreement last week on a new contract that raises the residents’ educational allowance, but doesn’t include a salary increase.

Salaries for resident doctors will remain unchanged at just under $52,000 for the first year, despite the residents original request of a $2,250 one-time bonus amount to help cover the rising cost of living in the East Bay. The contract offers a $500 bonus to all residents for ratifying the contract according to a press release.
