Kaiser Mental Health Workers on Strike Today

Kaiser Permanente mental health professional care givers are going on strike today. Hundreds of therapists and other staffers say they plan to walk out at Kaiser’s Oakland and Richmond locations today. The workers claim the company reneged on a promise the staff would have MLK Day off as a paid holiday but then changed it back to a regular work day. In response Kaiser said there is a miscommunication because starting in 2023, not this year, the company is indeed going to change MLK Day to a paid holiday.
