Top 5 Highlights of Our 2022 Alliance Leadership Conference

Updated: Jun 23, 2022

Thank you to the hundreds of Alliance members who joined us for this year’s Alliance Leadership Conference. We had an amazing 2-day hybrid conference with close to 500 Alliance members and Kaiser Permanente guests, 42 workshops, and 23 speakers. We’re able to make it or want to see the top highlights? Check out the top 5 ALC moments below:

1. The ALC’s opening video on our 2021 National Bargaining Campaign

2. Honest testimonials from frontline UBT Co-leads and Sponsors on the impact of the pandemic and contract negotiations last year

3. Alliance Executive Director Hal Ruddick leading the call to action to reimagine our partnership and to focus on (1) rebuilding relationships (2) reinvigorating and supporting UBTs and (3) implementing our new National Agreement

"Like anything else that has been around for 25 years, partnership needs to be updated and continually reimagined, evaluated, and improved to meet changing times. If we focus on rebuilding relationships, getting partnership work back on track, and living up to our commitments, we can ensure that KP and our members will remain successful now and for many years into the future.”

4. Kaiser Permanente Chairman and CEO Greg Adams said, “partnership is a gift. It is a gift that we have that a lot of organizations don't have. And like any precious gift, we have to work to protect and to keep it alive and to make sure the people understand and value it.”

5. UNAC/UHCP President Denise Duncan, RN leading a frank discussion about why we need to reinvigorate our Unit-based Teams.

Our goal should be that every union member powers innovation, keeping the ahead of the competition. The people attending this conference will decide whether UBTs thrive. We need time, we need active UBT sponsors, we need partnership behaviors, and most of all, we need leadership. We won’t agree on everything. Union members and managers don’t even need to like each other to work toward shared goals. But if we want to be successful, we need to get this show back on the road.

6. Our Panel on “Implementing the National Agreement Together” covered important topics like Just Culture, Racial Justice, and Affordability. We also had key messages from our both labor and management leaders.
