We know opening our contract for the first time in 16 years is important and our members showed they are united. Members stepped up and responded to our bargaining survey and this helped us shape our local bargaining priorities. Some major issues we plan to address in our local contract are:


  • Compensation, wages and premium pay
  • Shifts/ Scheduling
  • Seniority
  • Language Updates
  • Opportunities for Growth


But we need you to win the best contract! Details to come about how you can join our Social Media Takeover on 5/13 to show KP we are united for the Best Jobs for the Best Care. Hear directly from the bargaining committee about our first day of negotiations by registering for our Local Bargaining Town Hall on May 13 at 6pm by clicking HERE: http://usw7600.ink/NP
