Alliance Bargaining Update

We continue to move toward reaffirmation of the Partnership and national bargaining between our new Alliance of Health Care Unions (AHCU) and Kaiser Permanente (KP).

In recent discussions with our Alliance Executive Board, KP senior management expressed interest in affirming a new Partnership.

The next step toward bargaining: Kaiser Permanente has invited the leaders of all unions who represent employees at Kaiser to attend a national labor summit on Monday, May 7 in Oakland.

The national bargaining dates originally scheduled for next week have been postponed to a date yet to be determined.

More information to follow next week’s meeting.
