Recent developments within the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU) have become such that on Monday, March 26, 2018, we made a decision to exit the CKPU and form a new coalition. As such, we are in the process of gathering the necessary information to develop a stable and secure new coalition with like-minded partner unions that will represent over 45,000 workers in the U.S. across nearly all regions where Kaiser Permanente has presence.
The UFCW, along with the new alliance of unions, share a firm commitment to our sister unions, as well as to the partnership with Kaiser Permanente.
