Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions
The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions was organized in 1996 by thirty local unions to win better contracts through united action. To win the strongest voice for workers in the industry, the Coalition proposed a labor-management partnership giving workers unit-based workplace democracy, a voice in strategic decisions at the highest levels, a growth strategy that has almost doubled the size of our membership, the best wages and working conditions in health care – and the best health care for Kaiser Permanente members and patients. Our strategy is seen as a model for unions in today's economy where the union is a strong voice for workers and also for high performance and the public good. Our Coalition represents more than 110,000 workers with one of the country's single largest private-sector bargaining agreements. To learn more about our work, visit www.lmpartnership.org.
