Aloha Kaiser Brothers and Sisters,
UNITE HERE! Local 5 was accepted into the Alliance of Health Care Unions yesterday. We will continue to work in partnership with Kaiser. Please know that we have made a commitment to maintain and develop our relationship with HNA (Hawaii Nurses Association OPEIU Local 50). Nothing will change. We will support each other in our goal to make Kaiser the best place for patient care.
As a member of the Alliance, we will join 45,000 Kaiser workers from 21 other locals in attaining a National Agreement. That process has already begun. Local bargaining will also commence in the coming weeks. Please stay involved and committed to getting a good contract that benefits all.
