KP and CNA Reach Tentative Agreement that Honors Our Nurses — Strike Cancelled
To our nurses,
We have reason to celebrate today and to share our immense gratitude for all of you and the inspiring work you do!
Early this morning — after months of diligent bargaining and nearly round-the-clock discussions over the past week — we reached a tentative agreement with CNA that honors our nurses with a generous economic package, accelerates our investments in staffing, and addresses workplace safety, diversity and equity, remote work, and other key matters that you asked Kaiser Permanente to address in this agreement, and we are pleased to have addressed them all.
Pending ratification, this tentative agreement meets or exceeds anything seen in recent memory in KP-CNA bargaining. We are proud of the work you do and proud to ensure Kaiser Permanente continues to be the best place to work for our valued nurses.
The tentative agreement is good for our nurses, our members and patients, and our organization as a whole.
CNA will be communicating to you with more details about the agreement and ratification voting process.
We recognize the stress that the bargaining process and impending strike may have created for you and your families so we are delighted the union has cancelled the strike, and our patients will continue to benefit from the compassionate, skilled care you provide year-round.
It is with great appreciation and joy that we celebrate you today with a tentative agreement that represents the deep respect we have for you and your work, and allows us to demonstrate that appreciation in a way that is sustainable and benefits our members and patients as well.
