Attention all Kaiser Northern California Pharmacists.
The Guild is aware that Kaiser is utilizing Registry pharmacists in several outpatient pharmacies in the Northern California Region. This was done WITHOUT any prior notification to or mutual agreement with the Guild. The Guild has filed Unfair Labor Practice Charges to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) regarding this matter. NLRB requested that the Guild pursue the grievance process first, which the Guild has done and the case is currently pending Arbitration. In the meantime, please defer all requests for help by registry pharmacists to management. Don’t be insubordinate, just tell the Registry pharmacist that management has different and specific ideas of what is correct and you wouldn’t want to mislead him/her. It is clear from Kaiser’s conduct that there are different standards for Guild pharmacists and registry.
