  • The National Agreement, effective October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2018, covers 110,000 members in multiple states. The Agreement is between Kaiser Permanente and the Coalition of Kaiser Unions. Each Union also has its own individual local Union Contract.
  • The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, AFL-CIO, is a federation of 28 union locals representing more than 100,000 Kaiser Permanente employees. Since 1997, the Coalition has worked with Kaiser Permanente in the largest and longest-lasting labor management partnership in the United States to help provide affordable, high-quality care and service to KP members while ensuring industry-leading pay, benefits and working conditions for our union members.

  • The Labor Management Partnership (LMP) is the largest and longest-lasting partnership of its kind in the country. Created in 1997, it is based on a series of agreements between the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, made up of 28 union locals, Kaiser Permanente and the Permanente medical groups in each region. Today, it covers more than 100,000 union members and tens of thousands of managers and physicians.
