2015 Union Delegate Conferences
The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions will hold three national delegate conferences in 2015 for Kaiser Permanente workers represented by coalition unions:
• February 6-7 in San Jose: Training on interest-based bargaining and techniques for engaging union members in the bargaining process
• March 27-29 in Anaheim: Regular annual delegate conference
• June 16-17 in Los Angeles: Delegates endorse the tentative National Agreement, if one is reached; the tentative agreement will then go to individual unions for member ratification
