OR, WA Kaiser Employees To Strike Next Week

(Portland, OR) -- Thousands of Kaiser Permanente workers in Oregon and Southwestern Washington are set to go on strike next week. Union leaders representing the employees gave management a ten-day notice last Thursday of their intent to strike over what they claim are proposed wage cuts for new and existing workers. The Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals alleges Kaiser Permanente proposes to depress wages for current employees and slash pay for incoming workers by way of a two-tier system that would take effect amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Kaiser officials deny the claim.
