08/07/15 – Ballots will be mailed out today for UFCW Local 135 Kaiser Members. An agreement has been reached between the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions and Kaiser on a three year National Agreement which will take effect on October 1, 2015. Please read all materials before marking your ballot.
Ballots are due back at the local union office by Friday, August 21, at noon and will be counted that afternoon. If you would like to help count the ballots, please contact your Union Representative.
We are pleased with the results of these negotiations, and we recommend that you accept this offer. Although negotiations were difficult at times, it was the strength and solidarity of the Partnership unions that resulted in such a favorable settlement. A rejection vote means that the UFCW no longer remains in the Partnership and would require that we negotiate on our own without the strength of the 105,000 Kaiser union members across all Regions.
If you have any questions, please contact your Union Representative.
