Kaiser NUHW mental healthcare workers launched a five day strike on December 10, 2018 to demand proper staffing to serve their patients and decent working conditions. They were also joined by CNA nurses at the Kaiser hospitals.

Kaiser which has been fined previously by the state of California is refusing to promptly treat seriously ill patients and is outsourcing the work to contractors.

According to the workers and families, this is creating a serious healthcare crisis and in some cases is leading to suicides and deaths.

According to the union and Congressman Patrick Kennedy it is also violating the law of California and the US. Kennedy called on the California Attorney General Xavier Bacerra to conduct an investigation of Kaiser because of it's failure to provide proper care to patients with mental healthcare problems and also cost shifting by Kaiser to limit their liability. Kennedy charged that they are pushing patients onto Social Security and onto local county health systems to increase their profits.
