Unions in the Alliance of Healthcare in California served Kaiser Permanente with a strike notice today. This strike notice only impacts certain local unions on the West Coast and does not impact UFCW Local 1996 in Georgia.
Members of UFCW Local 1996, as well many others, have approved a strike authorization. While these unions on the west coast are giving their ten-day notice of a strike and job walkout, this is not the case for us in Georgia, at this time. We have not yet issued the 10-day notice of a strike and job walkout.
Bargaining is ongoing and we will post updates on our website.
