Dear Local 30 Members,
Late last week we learned that the National Labor Relations Board is prepared to issue a favorable decision regarding the charges the unions of the Coalition filed last April. In our charges we alleged that the employer illegally walked out of bargaining with us back in March and then demanded a new Partnership Agreement before they would return to the table. The Coalition filed the charges, gave testimony, and finally the Board has informed the parties of their intent to uphold the positions of the unions. The bargaining must resume and there can be no preconditions placed on bargaining.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 OPEIU Local 30 Scholarship Fund & Student Debt Relief Awards. Each award is in the amount of $1,500.00.
Dear Local 30 members,
As you are aware our National Agreement termination date is September 30, 2018. While the Coalition continues to urge Kaiser to return to the bargaining table and complete a new National Agreement covering our members, until then we will continue to do the work of Partnership in the process.
Following September 30th, the terms of the current National Agreement remain in effect while we bargain a renewal. Our members will receive a 3% wage increase on October 1, 2018, (or the nearest pay period) and the benefits we enjoy will not immediately change.
The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, including Local 30, continues to meet with Kaiser management to bargain over a new Partnership Agreement, a proposal of management’s intended to redefine the Partnership relationship between labor and management. Now that some of the unions that were formally Coalition unions have left the Coalition, Kaiser has decided to take a different approach to bargaining a new National Agreement by first requiring unions to sign on to a new Partnership Agreement. We continue to discuss those terms.
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.
