We Need Your Help - Company Disregarding Seniority with Job Elimination
As Kaiser Permanente employees and UFCW Local 7 members we believe Kaiser Permanente needs to adhere to the labor contract that we and our fellow Local 7 members have fought hard for. One of these basic agreements relates to how the company administers a reduction in staff during a reorganization or job elimination. We have recently been made aware of a situation where a senior RN with a part-time FTE has been targeted. We disagree strongly with the company’s actions in this situation, and we implore the company to work with the Union and to honor contract language that has been a basic feature of our relationship. This company states that it wants an engaged workforce. These actions do not engage the workforce. We are willing to take further protected, concerted actions to protect our contract.
