We're Fighting For Our Patients

Kaiser Permanente nurses and health care professionals who are UNAC/UHCP members will strike across Southern California starting November 15 to demand the employer invest in patient care. Kaiser has $44.5 billion in reserves but has introduced proposals that overlook chronic staffing shortages and would likely make it harder to recruit — during a nationwide staffing shortage. We’re fighting to:


  • Protect patient care standards

  • Hasten patient access to care

  • Address chronic understaffing and burnout

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.
