Kaiser agrees to virus assistance

A union agreement with Kaiser Permanente will assist its employees, including those at the Chino Grand medical clinic in Chino, with childcare, temporary shelter and extra leave for those tested positive or diagnosed with coronavirus.

The measure applies to Kaiser’s 80,000 employees who are members of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions. It applies to full-time, part-time and per-diem employees.

Under the agreement, Kaiser employees who work at least 32 hours a week will be eligible for a grant of $300 a week to pay for childcare for children 14 or younger, as well as disabled, dependent children. Employees who work between 20 and 32 hours per week will receive a pro-rated grant.
