    Thurs 11/18: Join the 24-Hour Sympathy Strike in support of IUOE Local 39

    For 61 days, IUOE Local 39 has been on strike for better wages and conditions. Although Kaiser in Southern California and the Guild for Professional Pharmacists have reached tentative deals and averted strikes, in Northern California, Kaiser continues to drag on the strike as they refuse to bargain in good faith. 

    In solidarity with IUOE Local 39, Kaiser Permanente employees in Northern California represented by SEIU-UHW, OPEIU Local 29, and IFPTE Local 20 in the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions will hold a 24-hour sympathy strike beginning this Thursday, November 18th at 7am. Please join our brothers and sisters from Local 39 as they say no to Kaiser’s unacceptable terms that prioritize profits over employee retention and patient care standards.

    Urgent Santa Clara County and San José City Redistricting Meetings

    On Tuesday, November 16th at 2pm, the Board of Supervisors will hold an important redistricting conversation over Zoom to deliberate which county district map they will implement. This meeting is critical.

We need your help to make sure it gets implemented. Please email [email protected] for public comment talking points, our email template, and more information on the Unity Map.
