Sacramento Business Journal

Kaiser Permanente’s coalition of national unions has ratified a new, three-year contract that takes effect Wednesday. The agreement covers 105,000 Kaiser workers in 28 local unions, making it one of the largest private-sector contracts in the nation. Almost 5,700 workers in the Sacramento region are part of the coalition. “It’s one of the best contracts we’ve negotiated so far,” said Dennis Dabney, Kaiser’s senior vice president for national labor relations.
