We call for Kaiser Permanente Hawaii to stop treating hardworking Alliance members as second-class citizens and remove unfair standards from the Performance Sharing Program Financial Gate. For Alliance members to receive a payout, the region must exceed the financial margin OR meet a positive margin, whichever is greater. The Hawaii PSP program is unfair:
- The Alliance National Agreement does not require a positive margin;
- No other region in the PSP program requires a positive margin in addition to the financial margin;
- Non-union employees covered by the Rewards 4 Recognition program are not held to a positive margin.
After everything we have sacrificed during the pandemic, and through continuing shortages that force us to work short, Kaiser Permanente should focus on rewarding and retaining employees,
instead of penalizing us!
