 WE ARE PAs UNITED 

 Our Profession, Our Voice, Our Tomorrow 

OUR VISION

We Are Organizing With UNAC/UHCP To Build Power

The Northern California Physician Assistants are building momentum to make a lasting change. It's time that PA voices are included on the issues that impact our practice. This is why we organized to join UNAC/UHCP. 

OUR WHY

Our value to Kaiser Permanente and our local communities is unmistakable. Yet, our benefits, pay and opportunities do not reflect our importance. Despite our unique and necessary role, our working conditions, pay structure, and clinical practice at Kaiser lag behind our professional peers outside of this organization.

OUR CONCERNS

Together, we can address issues such as:

  • Moving towards parity with other Advance Practice Providers, in terms of professional respect, well-being and remuneration,

  • Secure existing retirement and other benefits for current and future PAs at Kaiser facilities in Northern California,

  • Equal collaboration with management on operational strategies that impact our ability to provide excellent care for the members of Kaiser Permanente,

  • Create leadership pathways for Physician Assistants so that there is PA representation in decision-making that affects PA practice conditions.

WHY UNAC/UHCP

WE HAVE JOINED  UNAC/UHCP!

UNAC/UHCP represents more than 35,000 healthcare professionals throughout California and Hawaii, including, but not limited to, nurses, pharmacists, and the Southern California Kaiser Permanente Physician Assistants.

 

Since organizing, physician assistants there have secured better benefits and pay, removed barriers to providing quality health care, improved pay transparency, and ensured better working conditions to prevent burnout and loss of personnel.

 

We chose to organize with UNAC/UHCP, an organization of diverse and unified clinicians with a reputation for securing industry-leading wages, benefits and working conditions. Their bargaining success is due to the solidarity among Kaiser healthcare professionals and the collaborative process that is the labor-management partnership.
