KPSC-NUHW Healthcare Professionals Update

January 24, 2019

A message to our Healthcare Professionals employees from Annie Russell, RN, chief operating officer, Southern California Permanente Medical Group; Arlene Peasnall, senior vice president, Human Resources Consulting, National Human Resources, Kaiser Permanente Health Plan and Hospitals; and Maryanne Malzone, interim senior vice president, Human Resources, Kaiser Permanente Southern California Health Plan and Hospitals:

At the 12th negotiating session with NUHW’s Healthcare Professionals held Wednesday, January 23, Kaiser Permanente provided a package proposal intended to help advance the pace of bargaining. Its proposal comprised Voluntary Benefits, Alternate Compensation Program, Regional Professional Practice Committee, and Education Leave – including tuition reimbursement.

While discussions were held about wages, certain benefits, and a performance incentive plan, both sides remain far apart on the specifics of these economic issues. NUHW agreed to review the KP package, and KP stated it was continuing to review the NUHW package proposal presented at the last bargaining session held January 11.

Both sides agreed to February 8 and 22 as next bargaining dates. We appreciate the continued dialogue.
