What are We Fighting For
The 24,000 registered nurses and health care professionals working at Kaiser Permanente are standing up for what’s right.
Protect patient care standards and access
Address chronic understaffing and burnout
Improve wages and preserve benefits
Resist cost-cutting without accountability
March for the future of healthcare
Join union health care workers from across the region for a March for the Future of Health Care on October 30th.
UNAC/UHCP members at Kaiser Permanente in SCAL have overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike.
Everything we’ve fought for in the past 50 years is at stake.
KP continues its narrative of competitors threatening to overtake a health care giant with pop-up clinics and expanding virtual care. The reality is that the employer emerged from the pandemic with at least $44 billion in cash reserves and a healthier outlook than many health care systems.
The real threat is that a new crop of KP leaders have redefined the organization's legacy of partnership, justice, and equity.
Across-the-board wage increases— 4% each of the next three years
Benefits reflect the value of our exceptional care and service
Improvements in economics and working conditions such as staffing that will attract even more dedicated RNs and health care professionals to the KP workforce
Robust social justice program, including recognizing the history of African Americans with a new Juneteenth holiday for KP caregivers
More Ben Hudnall and education benefits
Strong contract that enables us to provide even better patient care and service
Here’s what we are FIGHTING for:
KP is fiscally strong: KP must invest in safe staffing, patient access to care, staff retention and recruitment, and health equity.
