This agreement will enable Kaiser Permanente to secure an excellent job for all and is consistent with our commitment to a higher affordable price for our members and customers. We are grateful for our knowledgeable and compassionate collaborators who are dedicated to our members, patients, communities and each other. Until September 30, 2023, a new four-year collective agreement between Kaiser Permanente and the Kaiser-Dauer union coalition is in effect. The agreement, confirmed by workers represented by the coalition of the emperor`s permanent trade unions, includes more than 84,000 permanent emperor health workers employed by unions throughout the country. Trossman said he was particularly pleased that the new employment contract would create a $130 million training fund to bring more health professionals to the sector. Kaiser and negotiators from the 11 unions that make up the coalition reached an interim agreement on September 25, after nearly five months of negotiations that began in April. The agreement was ratified by union members in October, narrowly ruling out a week-long strike, which was due to start on 14 October. Kaiser Permanente is proud of its long history of work. A total of 40 trade unionists, who belong to 16 international trade unions, represent more than 160,000 workers of the emperor. In recent years, Kaiser Permanente has also entered into local and national agreements with unions outside the coalition, including: California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, AFSCME, UFCW, ETC (Steelworkers), IBT (Teamsters), Emperor Permanent Registered Nurse Anesthetists, IUOE, OFNHP, ILWU and UNITE HERE. In a statement issued on Friday, November 1, Kaiser said the collective agreement with the emperor`s coalition of permanent unions will last until September 30, 2023. It involves annual wage increases and the maintenance of workers` health and pension benefits, while creating a program to reduce the national shortage of health workers. In a statement friday, Arlene Peasnall, Kaiser`s senior vice president and chief human resources officer, said the contract is being awarded to Kaiser and its members, employees and municipalities “for a sustainable future” as the healthcare giant works to make its services more affordable and accessible.
