Kaiser Therapists Negotiations Update
Today at negotiations:
- Your negotiating team discussed and gave management a proposal on ETO vacation scheduling.
- Management withdrew their previous proposal to tier the PTs’ and OTs’ new hire wage grid, and instead proposed keeping the existing grid as is with NO additional wage increases this year, NO new longevity steps, and a 3% increase on October 2014 as per the National Agreement. Management maintained their same position for RTs—a 50% lower wage tier for new hires, and wage freezes for current RTs until their current pay mirrors the new tier.
- Your team will discuss counters to present to management at the next negotiation session.
Negotiations will continue on Wednesday October 16th.
