Our Local Bargaining Committee met with Kaiser today for Day 8 of local bargaining, capping off a busy week where we met a total of three times. We’ve made significant progress on a cover to cover “language clean-up” review of our current contract in order to reflect current practices and changes to the law since we last negotiated. 

Your Local 7600 Executive board unanimously voted on Tuesday, July 13 to give President, Michael Barnett, Vice President Norberto Gomez, and International Representative, Rosie Gonzalez, the authorization to pause our participation in Labor Management Partnership (LMP) activities if necessary. 

The foundation of the Kaiser Permanente (KP) LMP is best care and best jobs. Our members are focused on the patient, but KP is more focused on the bottom line.
