The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in August approved plans for a mail ballot election to begin Sept. 13 for tens of thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees throughout California.
The election will determine if the workers at the health care giant will be represented by one of three unions: United Healthcare Workers-West, which currently represents the health care workers, a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) local or the independent National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW).
Kaiser employees also have the option of voting for no union representation.
Approximately 45,000 technical, service and clerical workers at Kaiser are eligible to vote.
NUHW—formed by former leaders of the United Healthcare Workers—filed the petition for the election, which will be among the largest the NLRB has ever handled. According to the NLRB, employees will have three weeks to return the ballots once they are mailed. NLRB personnel will count the ballots starting Oct. 6.
