Kaiser PSP Bonus Update 3/4/16

Coalition Union Brothers and Sisters,

The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions met yesterday with Kaiser Permanente to discuss the 2015 payout for the Performance Sharing Program (PSP) in the Southern California region. The employer informed us that—due to unforeseen expenses that occurred late last year—the necessary financial gate for a bonus did not open. As a result, there is no payout for 2015.

In lieu of the PSP payout, the employer has offered a “special payment” of $215 dollars per Coalition-union represented employee. The Coalition disagrees with this approach for our union members.

You are the driving force behind the growth of Kaiser Permanente and the growth of our individual unions. Thus, we believe that the people who make Kaiser Permanente successful should be rewarded appropriately.

Coalition Union leaders will continue to discuss the matter with Kaiser Permanente management and keep our union members informed.

In unity,

 

Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, AFL-CIO—Southern California
