More than 13,700 Kaiser Permanente workers rejected a final contract offer Saturday and authorized a strike if labor negotiations fail to reach an agreement. Members of the Health Care Workers Union Local 250 voted by 96% to reject the offer during 10 days of secret balloting that were tallied Saturday. Kaiser spokeswoman Kathy Blackburn said the next step will be for a mediator who has been involved in the talks to decide whether to call the two sides back.

In a radical turnabout, striking technicians, maintenance workers and licensed vocational nurses at Kaiser Permanente's Southern California hospitals and clinics voted Monday to accept a new contract offer and return to work beginning this morning. The vote--4,118 to 2,592 in favor--ended an eight-day walkout over wages that began after a smaller number of workers voted overwhelmingly on March 30 to reject a nearly identical contract proposal.

Negotiators representing Kaiser Permanente and Local 399 of the Service Employees International Union reported Tuesday that they have agreed upon a tentative labor agreement that could end their 3 1/2-month dispute. The proposed contract, which must be ratified by union members, calls for a one-year pay raise of 3% for 12,000 Kaiser health care workers in Southern California, and lump sum payments the last two years of the contract.

A strike by some bloodmobile drivers and laboratory employees in the Los Angeles-Orange County region of the American Red Cross will have little effect on blood supplies in Orange County, Red Cross officials said this week. Only six of 33 laboratory workers who are members of Teamsters Local 208 failed to report for work Monday, and all eight of the county's bloodmobile drivers continued to work, said Sylvia Stewart, a spokeswoman for the Orange County chapter of the American Red Cross.

Angry psychiatric technicians picketed in front of Fairview Developmental Center on Tuesday to protest the state's proposal to cut 20% from their pay.
