Kaiser Permanente facing two-day strike by nurses in California

Posted On: Nov. 14, 2022 9:55 AM CST

More than 21,000 nurses across 21 Kaiser Permanente facilities in Northern California plan to strike Nov. 21 and Nov. 22 in what National Nurses United is calling one of the largest private-sector nurse strikes in U.S. history, reports Becker’s Hospital Review. Members of the California Nurses Association union are striking to protest the Oakland, California-based system's "refusal to address their ongoing concerns about workplace health and safety and chronic short staffing," according to a Nov. 10 news release.
