Please note OPEIU Local 30 members are part of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions.
The attached flyer is to inform you about the negotiations currently taking place between Kaiser Permanente and your co-workers who are part of the Alliance Unions. We are asking for your support of your co-workers during these tough negotiations.
The Alliance Unions are currently in bargaining with Kaiser for their next contract. While these negotiations do not directly affect our union as our National Agreement runs through 2023, we certainly support the efforts of our sister unions.
As their bargaining progresses there will likely be a campaign to rally support among their members such as sticker-up events, distribution of informational flyers, and the like to aid in their efforts to get a good contract. I would ask our members to be considerate of the current situation of the Alliance and be as supportive as possible. While we may be in separate coalitions, we share many of the same issues as employees and mutual support will help us all.
Please remember this is about our co-workers and always wanting the best for all Kaiser employees. Protecting our wages and benefits, our workplace safety, and our good contracts are important to us all.
As the variant continues to spread and hospitalizations are increasing across the state, Kaiser Permanente and OPEIU Local 30 have successfully reached agreement on incentive pay for certain classifications. While each and every worker is essential in the delivery of care, it has been decided at this time that the classifications listed will be given premium pay for additional shifts.
Once again, the members of our Scholarship Committee have worked very hard to bring our members this wonderful benefit. If you, or a member of your immediate family is currently attending College or will be this fall or have loans from a recognized student loan provider or debtor organization, and are current in their student loan payments, then this Union benefit is just in time.
Enclosed please find the scholarship application forms, a copy of the rules, and other information about this program. You are welcome to send in one application for each eligible family member. Acceptance letter or school registration information, or documentation that student loan payments are up to date must be attached to the application and submitted to the Local 30 office by September 30, 2021, to be eligible for the Scholarship drawing. Incomplete applications may be excluded. Please be sure to apply as soon as possible. We will draw the winners at our October General Membership meeting.
This is yet another benefit designed for Local 30 members and their families.
As always, thank you for your support of your Union!
