The largest healthcare worker strike in U.S. history has come to an end without any deal being reached
ยท Oct 8, 2023 ยท

I gotta say, a few days ago this seemed like it'd be a much bigger deal:

And yet it kinda ended basically with a whimper Saturday morning:

More than 75,000 unionized Kaiser Permanente employees are returning to work after a historic three-day strike. But an even bigger, longer work stoppage could be just around the corner.

This week's temporary work stoppage โ€” the largest health care strike in US history โ€” concluded at 6 am PT on Saturday without a deal.

So they just finished up the strike and went home like...

Not sure if that's the approach I'd take. Although a union flak said the strikes "may resume later if a deal is not reached." So they were just flexing some muscle and that's it.

More talks are scheduled for the near future, although "the coalition of unions said it could issue a 10-day warning after Saturday that could kick off another round of strikes in a couple weeks" depending on how those go.

So it ain't over yet!
