Yesterday, on the eve of the start of National Bargaining several unions informed the Coalition and Kaiser Permanente that they were leaving the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU). This means that these unions will not be participating in National Bargaining this year unless they decide at some point to return to the Coalition.
While we in Local 30 are saddened by their departure, we continue to prepare for and absolutely plan to complete a new National Agreement as part of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU).
The unions that remain in the Coalition, which represent more than two thirds of the union members at KP, are committed to work together as always to reach another great agreement to the benefit of all our members. We will provide updates as promised.
We know you are hearing rumors from various sources, most of them unreliable. As always, unless the information comes from Local 30 directly, please disregard it.

As we begin the process of 2018 National Bargaining covering our Kaiser Permanente members, we will once again be conducting a series of ‘Town Hall’ style meetings across the service area.
We plan to discuss issues and our strategy for the upcoming negotiations, and answer any related questions. This is a great opportunity to obtain the most current information and be up to speed on our direction. Members are invited to attend any meeting that is most convenient, the information shared will be the same at each meeting.
Today, the San Diego City Council overrode Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s veto and OFFICIALLY PASSED THE EARNED SICK DAYS AND MINIMUM WAGE ORDINANCE! Their override means that the Earned Sick Leave-Minimum Wage is once again in place to help hardworking San Diegans who struggle to pay the rent and buy groceries.
However, our fight continues, opponents representing a small handful of special interests have announced that they are prepared to spend what it takes to repeal the law. They will be in front of grocery stores and other areas in the city attempting to collect 34,000 signatures to repeal the law.
To push back against this brazen attack against hard working San Diegans we need your help! Council President Todd Gloria, Irwin Jacobs, Mel Katz, Bill Walton and Barbara Bry kicked off the citywide campaign, simply called “Don’t Sign It,” to defeat the referendum against the ordinance.
Today, City Council stood up for 280,000 San Diegans who lack sick leave and nearly 200,000 low-wage workers who work hard every day and can’t afford rent and groceries, now its time to do our part.
