SEIU-UHW wrecked our Kaiser contract, here’s a guide

January 31st, 2013

Every day we learn new ways that SEIU-UHW wrecked our contract.  (Spanish)

Now there’s a guide from NUHW-CNA that explains the fine print of what SEIU-UHW isn’t telling us about how the national agreement hurts Kaiser workers:

  • Hidden on pages 60-61 (or Section 2 B.3): a retiree benefit cut
  • Hidden in pages 11-112 (or Section 1 B.3): a partnership tax
  • Hidden in page 69 (or Section 3 E): language giving SEIU-UHW and Kaiser the right to change our benefits at any time
  • Hidden in page E-23 (Exhibit 1.H.1b): a privacy invading “total wellness program” whose real purpose is to save Kaiser money
  • Hidden in page 58 (or Section 2 B.2.c): SEIU gives Kaiser hundreds of millions of dollars from our pension

This is a contract that works for Kaiser, not for us.
