Over 1,000 Nothern California Kaiser heatlhcare workers rallied in Oakland, CA on September 2, 2019 to protest the union busting tactics of Kaiser executives. Kaiser according to the workers wants a two tier wage system and is cutting back on care.

The SEIU UHW and OPEIU had been in a longterm labor management partnership agreemeent with Kaiser management and had made significant concessions but these were not enough.

Addtionally, the union partnership had been broken up because of difference with the NNU, NHW and other unions isolating the SEIU UHW. Plans are moving ahead for a national unfair labor practce strike of Kaiser of the SEIU UHW’s 88,000 workers in October.

SEIU UHW leadership have also joined with Kaiser in the past to oppose single payer in. California.

A Kaiser member Ken Ho also talks about treatment of his wife, the short staffing and the refusal of Kaiser to allow his wife to get a second opinon about her condition.

NUHW and Kaiser mental health workers are also without a contract and have had statewide strikes about the lack of proper care for patients with mental health problems.

Other workers discuss how the attack on Kaiser workers in connected to the general attack on working class including privatization of the Port of Oakland for an A's stadium.

A staged civil disobedience action was held by dozens of workers to block the street and these workers were arrested. The same action took place the previous Labor Day 2018.
