As the new year gets underway, we’re happy to welcome UFCW Local 555 back into the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions.

Local 555 represents about 1,000 pharmacy and imaging professionals at Kaiser facilities in Oregon and southwestern Washington.

“We’re looking forward to having an equal voice among the Coalition unions as we work with them on the important tasks of revitalizing the Labor-Management Partnership,” said UFCW 555 President Dan Clay.

United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555 joined the Alliance of Health Care Unions with other UFCW locals in 2018, but the local recently decided to rejoin the Coalition.

“We’re glad to have the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555 in the Coalition, and look forward to their contributions to both the Coalition and the Partnership,” said Coalition Staff Director Steven Ward.

With the rejoining of UFCW 555, the Coalition now brings together 12 locals from four international unions.
