Working together to build a better future

Our commitment to labor runs as deep as our commitment to delivering high-quality, affordable care. And with our unmatched model of integrated care, you can count on us to be a strong partner.

Every day, Kaiser Permanente collaborates with our union workers to help improve what we do. It’s how we got our start — and how we’ll continue to keep your members healthy, strong, and on the job.

Our history of health

Since 1945, our membership has come a long way. Today, we’re one of the largest unionized, nonprofit health care organizations in the country.

An innovative partnership

Most of our union workers, managers, and clinical staff work together as the Labor Management Partnership, a joint commitment to share decision-making and problem-solving in the workplace. Formed by Kaiser Permanente and the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions more than 20 years ago, this groundbreaking partnership gives employees a real voice in improving and delivering care.

Achieving great things together

The success of the Labor Management Partnership rests on our unit-based teams — work groups that collaborate to help improve performance. The idea behind unit-based teams is that every person on the job has a valuable perspective. Union members are empowered to contribute to Kaiser Permanente’s national leadership and innovate the way we deliver care.

Improving outcomes

By encouraging employees to speak up, we’re providing better quality of care for our patients and creating a top workplace for employees.

Creating jobs for thousands

Union members are vital to building and maintaining our care facilities across the nation. By working together, we’re developing the next generation of hospitals and medical offices — helping to ensure union jobs and strengthening trust funds.

Partner with us to help ensure the future health of your members and their families.

Kaiser Permanente is composed of the nonprofit Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.; the nonprofit Kaiser Foundation Hospitals; and the for-profit Permanente Medical Groups.
