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 . . .

More than 300 local union member leaders from across the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions met from April 17-18 to mark the start of national bargaining with Kaiser Permanente. After over a year of labor tension and coordinated member actions, to say there was excitement in the room would be an understatement. 

The first day of bargaining provided an opportunity for union leaders to come together and discuss overall bargaining strategy, review our goals and expected outcomes, and participate in work groups and bargaining training.

Dear Local 30 members,

I am pleased to report to you that we will return to the bargaining table to resume negotiations for a new National Agreement.  Labor and management will begin meeting on April 18th in Oakland.

The sides reached agreement this week to restart the bargaining and work out the terms of the National Agreement together, and to rebuild our Partnership and continue the great work we have done together over the past 20 years. 

Local 30’s bargaining team members are:  CIC members Marianne Giordano, Annette Baxter and Roger Lester. And observers Jon Larson, Catherine Engler, Michael Ramey and Mark Englehart. Walter Allen continues to be involved as the Interim Executive Director for the Coalition.

There will be much more information coming about National as well as local bargaining.  As promised, we will continue to provide updates along the way. 

In unity,

Marianne Giordano
Executive Director/CFO

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.
