Our Story

Our Mission


We are 32,000 registered nurses and health care workers united to build a better workplace and a healthier world.

We are advocates at the bedside and beyond. We believe empowering caregivers through a union leads not just to higher-quality and safer care, but also benefits our communities.

We Stand United!

Over the past year and a half, health care professionals at Kaiser Permanente have endured overwhelming staffing conditions, lack of access to necessary protective equipment and devastating mental and emotional strain in an unprecented pandemic to keep their commitment to providing the best care, any time and anywhere. 

However, rather than using their tremendous resources to address chronic short staffing and delayed access to necessary care, KP is choosing to pull back on their promise of the best jobs to invest in buildings.

KP is a successful employer that can and should invest in its greatest asset – registered nurses and health care professionals, and health care workers committed to providing the best care and service to our communities.

"Everything that we have is about the patients. It's about the future. This is about protecting each and every thing that we've built up. Everything that we do is for
the patient."
