85,000 Kaiser Workers Prepare for the Largest U.S. Strike in More Than Two Decades as Contract Talks Stall

LOS ANGELES – More than 85,000 Kaiser Permanente workers are making preparations for a national strike to begin this fall as contract talks between the workers and the giant, non-profit healthcare corporation broke off Thursday without an agreement.

The workers are from multiple unions in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Maryland, Virginia, Hawaii and the District of Columbia. Beginning in late July and continuing into August, union members will be voting to authorize their bargaining team to call the unfair labor practice strike. It would be the largest strike in the U.S. since the 1997 Teamsters strike at UPS.

Kaiser Execs Predict Financial Doom & Gloom

We all know that Kaiser has been making record profits — but they opened this bargaining session complaining “hard times” are ahead for the company.

They then presented their economic proposal that demands major cuts from us, including:

  • Copay increases to $20;
  • More outsourcing and automation of our jobs;
  • Lower pay, elimination of pensions, less time off — starting with new hires, then we’d be next.

National Bargaining Update 5/29/19


We entered bargaining this week with major momentum with members from every local of the coalition rallying to protect our patients and our families in our next contract.


Cuts to Our Jobs, Wages and Benefits. Kaiser wants us to agree to a contract with:

  • The lowest raises in decades.
  • Cuts to our benefits, including doubling our healthcare copays and coming after our retirement benefits.
  • Continued outsourcing and automation of our jobs.

As we head back into bargaining for our next national contract this week, Kaiser has announced its highest single-quarter profits ever: $3.2 BILLION.

We, the workers at Kaiser, have played a huge part in building this success. Yet instead of sharing in the success all we see are record company profits, skyrocketing reserves, and growing executive salaries.

Kaiser is looking for cuts that would hurt our families and our patients . . .
