We're excited to announce that we've begun bargaining for the newsest members of Local 7600!

To those newly-organized members, also known as Status 5 employees, everything related to your work should remain status quo as we go through the bargaining process.

Time-off granting should be done as before; and if any position becomes vacant, it should be posted as USW 7600.

As you know, the Alliance of Health Care Unions (AHCU) reached a tentative agreement with Kaiser, which USW Local 7600 overwhelmingly voted to ratify in early October. A provision of that union-negotiated agreement included a 3% wage increase to be implemented on October 1, 2018.

The AHCU is made up of more than 20 locals across the United States. All of which have their own bylaws for how contract ratification happens. Unfortunately, that means some members of the Alliance have not completed the ratification process yet.

Congratulations to Our President Valery Robinson Awarded  Community Service  Medal by NAACP in recognition for her hard work and dedication to our community.

 

USW 7600 along with the Alliance reached a strong TA with good wage increases, better benefits, and new LMP and Educational Trusts! This resounding victory would not have been possible without YOU stepping up and making your voice heard!

To learn exactly what our new National Agreement means for you and your family attend one of the following ratification meetings where you can ask questions and cast your vote.

After careful preparation, months of organizing in unprecedented numbers, and long days and nights in negotiating sessions stretching from May to September, we have finally secured a strong tentative agreement (TA) that met our key goals: a good wage increase, better benefits, new LMP and educational trust funds for our Alliance union members, and a plan to get our LMP back on track.
