Video: December 3 Celebration of New UNAC/UHCP Groups
On December 3, Kaiser case managers, patient educators, nurse midwives, and WOCNs gathered to celebrate their recent vote to join UNAC/UHCP and plan the next chapter of the journey.
Many reported morale in their units is very low. Said a case manager from Antelope Valley, "if the union wasn't coming, I wouldn't stay."
Case managers at Kaiser Riverside spoke of losing benefits and worried because there is no cap on the number of patients they see. Said one RN, "they keep adding more and more to our workload."
Bargaining for the Kaiser case managers, patient educators, nurse midwives, and WOCNs begins January 24, 2012.
