Kaiser Permanente health workers have rescheduled their strike after postponing it following the death of the company’s CEO Bernard Tyson last month. About 4,000 Kaiser mental health workers will walk off the job for five days starting December 16. The union says the strike would affect patients are over 100 Kaiser facilities across California. Workers also want the hospital to shorten wait time for patients trying to schedule return visits for behavioral health treatment. Kaiser said they had proposed a compromise, but the union rejected it and decided to proceed with the strike.
