Kaiser Permanente averted an employee strike after reaching a tentative agreement that came after a months-long period of bargaining between Kaiser and the Alliance of Health Care Unions.  

In the Valley region, Kaiser has care centers in Woodland Hills, Panorama City and Antelope Valley.   

The agreement comes after some Kaiser employees were dissatisfied with changes in what they believed was an insufficient wage structure. One of the supposed issues at hand was Kaiser’s proposal to introduce a 1 percent wage increase with a 1 percent bonus each year. Union members wanted a 4 percent wage increase through the next three years.
