    Default Kaiser Permanente workers to strike in October

    This isn't one union calling a strike, this is a Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions that want to bring awareness to the unfair labor practices of the healthcare group.

    80,000 Kaiser Permanente workers to strike nationwide in October
    About 80,000 Kaiser Permanente employees will strike for a week starting Oct. 14 after accusing their employer of enriching top executives, raising rates on patients and outsourcing jobs, the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions announced late Monday.
    Kaiser Permanente and employees have been going back and forth for more than a year over complaints. Workers will set up picket lines at Kaiser Permanente locations such as hospitals and medical offices in California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
    The coalition of unions says it wants a new national agreement that would protect middle-class jobs, restore a true worker-management partnership, ensure safe staffing and compassionate use of technology, build the workforce of the future to deal with major projected shortages of licensed and accredited staff in the coming years.
    "They could resolve this today. Instead, their focus has moved over the years from a community-based nonprofit to one focused on piling huge profits and enriching top executives. All the while, they are raising rates on patients, they are underserving patients on Medicaid, and they're attacking the same workers who have made the company so successful."

    Tentative labor agreement reached before October strike !

    Kaiser Permanente and 85,000 workers reach tentative labor agreement
    After months of failed negotiations, Kaiser Permanente and a coalition of unions representing 85,000 workers have announced a tentative agreement that could avert an unfair labor practices strike set to begin Oct. 14.
    The employees are represented by the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, which includes SEIU-UHW and 10 other unions. If ratified, the labor agreement will provide annual pay increases and maintain employee benefits while also creating a program to reduce the national shortage of healthcare workers.
    The workers’ national contract expired Sept. 30, 2018, and in December the National Labor Relations Board charged Kaiser with failing to bargain in good faith and wrongly tying collective bargaining negotiations to a ban on political activity, including picketing the company.
