On May 30, we’re standing together across the country to say,
Kaiser: Respect Our Partnership!
It’s up to us — the 85,000 members of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions — to save our Partnership with Kaiser.
Kaiser and its executives are making record earnings, with $28 billion in reserves, a 22% increase in profits last year, and dozens of executives making salaries of
over one million dollars.
But when it comes to frontline healthcare workers, Kaiser is outsourcing hundreds of our jobs, attacking our pay and benefits, refusing to bargain with us, and trying to silence our voices.
And now Kaiser is trying to walk away from the Partnership that has guaranteed quality patient care and good jobs for over 20 years. We will not let Kaiser force us back to the years of ugly labor wars and substandard patient care and jobs.
On May 30, join with 85,000 other members of the Coalition as we raise our voices to tell Kaiser:
PARTNERSHIP TAKES TWO!
Yesterday, on the eve of the start of National Bargaining several unions informed the Coalition and Kaiser Permanente that they were leaving the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU). This means that these unions will not be participating in National Bargaining this year unless they decide at some point to return to the Coalition.
While we in Local 30 are saddened by their departure, we continue to prepare for and absolutely plan to complete a new National Agreement as part of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU).
The unions that remain in the Coalition, which represent more than two thirds of the union members at KP, are committed to work together as always to reach another great agreement to the benefit of all our members. We will provide updates as promised.
We know you are hearing rumors from various sources, most of them unreliable. As always, unless the information comes from Local 30 directly, please disregard it.
