Pharmacists Negotiations Update: June 11, 2015

June 2015

“It has been a very successful couple of weeks! We have been very touched by the love and support of the entire Coalition. We are very proud and happy about the pension restoration for the vast majority of our members as of July 1, 2015.”
—Nevine Gad-Bishara, Fontana/Ontario

The most important goal for our negotiations was fulfilled last weekend—restoration of our pension—when the entire Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions stood strong with UNAC/UHCP, refusing to settle the National Agreement without it, and forcing a late night decision from the very top of the company, CEO Bernard Tyson.

Read the whole story and learn more details about the pension restoration here.

During this week’s negotiations on June 10 and 11, we reached tentative agreements on Grievance & Arbitration and Leaves of Absence.

We also began negotiations on Job Postings and Filling of Vacancies, reaching several tentative agreements, including a new Transfer Return Rights provision.

Join us for negotiations next week. All members are encouraged to attend:

Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19 |9:00 AM
UNAC/UHCP State Office
