How Our Partnership Came to Be


The story behind the creation of our Labor Management Partnership, which emerged in 1997 after years of strife between Kaiser Permanente and its unions. Leaders from Kaiser Permanente and some of the key Partnership unions, both past and present, share how they agreed to work collaboratively — a solution that ultimately improved care for members and provided job security for workers. Today, our partnership is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind.
