For months, Kaiser refused to offer 450 clerical workers the same wages that other SEIU-UHW members at Kaiser earn. But this group — known as Status 5 workers — pushed back and demanded equal pay for equal work.
Now their toughness and unity has paid off. With an overwhelming 99% YES vote, these members have ratified a contract that guarantees them the top-tier wages, benefits, and job security protections that all other Kaiser members have.
Congratulations, Status 5-ers — and welcome to the best contract in the healthcare industry!
