Kaiser Permanente Announces Tentative Agreement With Unions

11/16/2021
California
On Nov. 15, Kaiser Permanente announced that they’ve reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Health Care Unions and the Guild for Professional Pharmacists. Kaiser is continuing to bargain in good faith with the Local 39 Operating Engineers (IUOE) and the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) and expect to reach agreements soon.

No change to the Local 39 Operating Engineers strike has been announced and other unions have not yet rescinded their one-day sympathy strike notices for Thursday, Nov. 18 and Friday, Nov. 19. NUHW, the union that represents Kaiser mental health professionals, has also announced a one-day strike for Friday, Nov. 19, which remains in effect. 

Member and patient care is first priority for the company and they’ve taken steps to ensure the continuation of safe, quality services if the Northern California strike takes place.
