Kaiser Permanente’s priorities are in stark contrast to ours:

After an unprecedented show of strength by more than 2,500 union members who rallied at national coordinated bargaining, which included more than 500 Local 7600 members, labor and management reached a few tentative agreements, but called for more bargaining on August 28-29 to finalize a new National Agreement.

On May 22, 2018 the Alliance of Health Care Unions (AHCU) will begin coordinated bargaining for a new agreement with Kaiser Permanente (KP).
