While healthcare workers fight a devastating COVID surge, Kaiser has proposed an insulting two-tiered wage and benefit system to our union siblings in the Alliance.
Kaiser has made $11.4 billion in pandemic era profits. Yet, they are still pushing to lower wage rates on average of 26% and eliminate Defined Contribution retirement benefits for new hires— a first step in reductions for all of us.
Shortchanging workers means shortchanging patient care. Healthcare workers are leaving the industry in droves setting off staffing crises everywhere. Devaluing frontline workers will only make things worse.
We may be in different organizations, but we see Kaiser’s game of “divide and conquer” and are not falling for it. Sign the petition below to demand Kaiser do better.
