Largest sympathy strike in 127 years

SEIU-UHW Union Members Made History

Largest sympathy strike in 127 years


On November 18, we were all part of the largest sympathy strike in the United States in over a century. 40,000 Kaiser union members from SEIU-UHW, OPEIU Local 29, IFPTE Local 20 were the largest group of working people since 1894 to say we care enough about another group of workers to leave our job, give up pay and take a stand with the Local 39 Operating Engineers.

This is quite remarkable but not at all surprising. As healthcare workers, we have dedicated our lives to caring for others. We have risked our lives and health these past two years to care for patients during the pandemic. After seeing our co-workers, Kaiser engineers out on strike for 62 days, we said enough is enough. We joined them on the line with courage and honor in a moment that will define us for decades to come.

More than 30,000 Kaiser workers staged a one day strike today in solidarity with Kaiser engineers who have been on strike for two months.

The sympathy strikers walked out of 21 facilities across Northern California to demand Kaiser agree to a fair contract with Local 39.

I am encouraging @aboutKP to negotiate in good faith with IUOE Stationary Engineers Local 39. Proud to join @seiu_uhw in supporting their action at Kaiser Redwood City today.

These heroes have been on strike for 2 months now. We must support those who supported us during COVID.
