UFCW Local 770 stands in solidarity with the members of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions as they bargain for a fair contract. All Kaiser Permanente employees, regardless of union affiliation, want the same thing – for Kaiser Permanente to fix the staffing crisis by increasing compensation to attract and retain experienced employees, improving working conditions, hiring more aggressively, and working with labor to develop employees to fill future vacancies.
The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions will be on strike from Wednesday, October 4th – Saturday, October 7th. We encourage you to show your support by joining a local picket line in your off time, especially on our UFCW Solidarity Day, October 5th.
To Clarify, UFCW 770 Kaiser Members will NOT be on strike. Under your contract, you do not have the right to miss work because of Coalition activities, but you can join picket lines off the clock – on your day off, before work, during your lunch, or after work.
Please note that your contract does not require you to perform work outside your classification or volunteer for OT work to perform the work of striking employees. If asked to do this, we suggest you contact your union representative immediately.
