45,000 SEIU-UHW members at Kaiser ratified our new contract with Kaiser that protects quality patient care and good jobs.
We went into bargaining with clear priorities, and now we have a contract that wins on all of them:
Improves our healthcare.
Protects our pension.
Improves our job security.
Raises each year.
A majority of SEIU-UHW members at Kaiser turned out to vote, and by a landslide 98% vote we ratified our new contract.
But, that’s not all…
Sacramento is talking about Medi-Cal because of us. Fully funding Medi-Cal is critical to protecting our contract at Kaiser, and to ensuring millions of children and seniors get the care they need. Because of our work, the Governor called a special legislative session to find long-term funding solutions for Medi-Cal. Our donations to our political action fund, COPE, provide the support to make this happen.
Kaiser executives heard loud and clear from the vast majority of Kaiser UHW members on Oct. 18 when we marched on corporate headquarters in Oakland and Pasadena to deliver our 39,000 petition signatures.
