Kaiser Permanente, union reaches tentative agreement

October 11, 2018

Kaiser Permanente and the Alliance of Health Care Unions have reached a tentative agreement on a national, three-year collective bargaining agreement that covers nearly 48,000 unionized Kaiser Permanente healthcare workers, according to an article on the Maui Now website.

The negotiations, which began in May, were among the largest private-sector contract talks in the United States this year.

 The new agreement includes:

• Across-the-board wage increases, which vary by region and by year

• A new educational trust to fund job training, pursuit of academic degrees, professional certification and career counseling services for employees represented by an Alliance union

The contract will cover workers with job classifications from registered nurses and pharmacists to maintenance and service workers.
