The Alliance of Health Care Unions Steering Committee met from April 20 – 23, 2023 to develop programs, bargaining strategies and objectives, and contract enforcement strategies in conjunction with the Executive Board and the Executive Director. Every local union in the Alliance is represented on the Union Steering Committee.
This year, the focus is to train members on worker to worker engagement, contract preparedness, Racial and social Justice, and solutions to the staffing crisis. Meetings like this which are led by rank and file members from multiple Unions are key to the planning of our strategies that will continue to win us the changes we need to improve our ability to care for our patients as well as ourselves.
The Alliance includes locals of AFSCME, UFCW, USW, IBT, KPNAA, IUOE, OFNHP (AFT), UNITE HERE, ILWU, and HNHP. Our 52,000 Kaiser Permanente members work in hundreds of job classifications in every geographic area where Kaiser Permanente has a presence.
