Welcome Sharyn Baldwin, UFCW Local 135 New Kaiser Union Rep!


Sharyn may look familiar to you. She may particularly look familiar to pharmacy techs, assistants, pharmacist interns and clinical lab scientists at Kaiser Permanente.

In total, Sharyn worked for Kaiser for 28 years and spent the last six years on special assignment as a labor liaison for the local where she has been seen rounding and working to insure staff are safe and have a voice in their work place.

Although she has now retired from Kaiser, her retirement is the Local’s gain.

Sharyn was hired at UFCW Local 135 as a Union Representative in August. She will continue to support the pharmacy and lab staff as well as represent UFCW on many committees. She is the Labor Management Partnership (LMP) council co-chair, attendance committee co-chair, Education & Training co-chair, and serves on other committees including workplace safety, workforce development, workplace violence and the national sponsor committee to name just a few.

“This is a great opportunity for me to continue to support workers,” she said. “And to continue working with KP staff to insure their voice is heard.”

Sharyn is a long-time Vice President on the UFCW Local 135 Executive Board as well.

Welcome Sharyn! We are extremely lucky to have you and the insight and expertise you bring to our local!
