National Day of Action May 30 - Kaiser: Respect Our Partnership!

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!

Neil Gorsuch Just Demolished Labor Rights

His decision, a frontal attack on the New Deal, effectively legalizes wage theft.

The Supreme Court issued a 5–4 decision Monday in Epic Systems v. Lewis allowing employers to deprive their workers of their right to sue collectively. Its ruling, written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, blasts a massive hole through post–New Deal labor law, hobbling employees’ ability to recover in court when their employers underpay them. It is difficult to overstate how devastating Epic Systems is to labor rights in America—and how far Gorsuch strays from federal law in order to implement his preferred economic policy.

KP National Bargaining Update 4/2/18

Dear Local 30 Members,

I would like to update you on where we are with our National Bargaining and provide more details on how we got here. First off, to be clear Local 30 has NOT left the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions. While several other groups have decided to leave for a variety of reasons, the OPEIU local unions across the country remain committed to the Coalition and to the choice our members made years ago when they voted to join.

As a result of the unannounced departure of nearly a third of the membership of the Coalition, Kaiser has been put in the unenviable position of having to figure out how they will proceed given the now multiple demands to bargain. While we in the Coalition certainly maintain our right to bargain, Kaiser leadership has asked for some time to try to sort this out. We have agreed to allow them that time and our National Bargaining will be delayed for a bit to accommodate that request. We fully intend to return as soon as possible to the bargaining table.

Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions – National Bargaining

Dear members,

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.

In unity,

 

Walter Allen Jr.
Executive Director/CFO
