By a tally of 37,089 YES to 867 No, SEIU-UHW members across Kaiser have voted overwhelmingly to authorize our bargaining team to call a strike.
We did this in spite of Kaiser’s illegal efforts to shut us down, silence our voices, and suppress our votes.
Why? Because we know that going on strike is very likely the only way we’ll stop Kaiser’s unfair labor practices and win a contract that protects our jobs, wages, and benefits.
With this vote, we’ve shown Kaiser that our patients and our families are more important — and more powerful — than huge corporate profits and bloated executive salaries.
What’s next? Join our Labor Day Rally for Healthcare Justice at Kaiser to show that we’re 100% committed to protecting quality care and good jobs and stopping their bad faith bargaining!
