Another New Kaiser Strike On The Table

by | Nov 17, 2022 | Healthcare, Strikes, Unions

The ten-week Kaiser Permanente mental health workers strike recently ended in California with no meaningful results. Despite that outcome, 21,000 Kaiser nurses will launch a two-day strike on November 21 at two dozen facilities across the state. Meanwhile, the Kaiser mental health worker strike in Hawaii reached the 70-day mark with more bargaining sessions to come.

Hospital workers in Inglewood, California will likely receive their $25 per hour minimum wage once midterm ballots are tallied. Measure HC currently stands at 53% approval, although in nearby Duarte, the counterpart measure looks destined to fail with voters.

In Wichita, Kansas, the city’s largest hospital saw nearly 650 nurses vote to join National Nurses Organizing Committee, part of National Nurses United.

More strikes, including healthcare workers in Red Bluff, California, will likely continue to bubble up in this industry. To that end, this roundup of 18 notable healthcare strikes will surely grow before 2022 heads into the sunset.
