Kaiser To Begin Contract Talks With National Unions
On Tuesday, Kaiser Permanente is expected to begin contract negotiations with a coalition of national unions that represent 32,600 health care workers in Northern California. During the talks, which are expected to end in early June, officials will discuss operational issues -- such as quality and patient satisfaction -- skills workers will need in the future and the necessary training and employee health and safety. If a deal is reached and ratified, it would take effect Sept. 30 when the current contract expires.
