Kaiser Permanente and the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions are pleased to announce that Coalition-represented employees have voted to ratify a 4-year national agreement. Employees also approved their local collective bargaining agreements.
These agreements will help ensure we remain a best place to work and receive care. The employees are represented by 11 local unions in nearly every Kaiser Permanente market.
The national agreement is effective October 1, 2023, through September 30, 2027. It includes annual wage increases, new minimum wages, and a redesigned Performance Sharing Plan. The agreement also addresses other top priorities such as staffing, additional opportunities for employee education and career development, and more.
We will begin implementing the national contract immediately. We look forward to working together through the Labor Management Partnership to advance our mission of providing high-quality, affordable health care services and improving the health of our members and the communities we serve.
