NLRB: Kaiser Bargained in Bad Faith
The National Labor Relations Board has been authorized to issue a complaint against Kaiser for bad faith bargaining. This ruling is a major blow to Kaiser — it affirms the legal allegations that Kaiser:
ILLEGALLY withdrew from National Bargaining with the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions;
ILLEGALLY put preconditions on bargaining by trying to force caregivers to sign off on a gag order that would limit our rights to take political action and speak out for our patients.
Kaiser now must comply with the law by returning to the bargaining table without pre-conditions — or the NLRB will prosecute Kaiser in a trial.
This is a great step towards winning healthcare justice at Kaiser — but we need to keep standing strong against Kaiser's scheme to outsource jobs, slash raises, and reduce benefits on the caregivers who make them record profits.
