New Kaiser Permanente National & Local Tentative Agreement!

After careful preparation, months of organizing in unprecedented numbers, and long days and nights in negotiating sessions stretching from May to September, we have finally secured a strong Tentative Agreement that met our key goals: a good wage increase, better benefits, new LMP and educational trust funds for our Alliance union members, and a plan to get our LMP back on track.  Please Click Here to learn more about the Tentative Agreement.
