Tentative Agreement Reached with HealthPartners/Voting Instructions

Dear Local 12 Members at HealthPartners,

On Friday, December 10th, OPEIU Local 12 and HealthPartners concluded contract negotiations by coming to a Tentative Agreement. The Local 12 bargaining team spent hundreds of hours preparing and negotiating the contract, including two marathon overnight negotiating sessions that lasted over 25 straight hours each. This agreement is tentative until accepted via vote by the Local 12 union members at HealthPartners. 

Local 12 will be hosting two Zoom meetings for members to come and ask questions/get clarifications/etc from the Bargaining team and the log on information is listed below.  The best way to get questions answered is to attend one of these meetings as we will be reviewing all tentative changes.  If you need questions answered and cannot attend either meeting, please reach out to the Local 12 bargaining team that are copied on the email and someone will answer your questions.

Bargaining Update December 11, 2021

The Local 12 Bargaining team returned to the table on Wednesday and Thursday this week and spent some long days and late nights fighting back the Employer’s extensive health insurance plan and insulting and low wage proposals.

WE HAVE REACHED A TENATIVE AGREEMENT!

Important Findings on HealthPartners

Local 12 reached out to our International Researcher Kyle Friend to get some intel on HealthPartners Financials. The attached is public information. The truth is in the research and we want to ask you to take a look at this non-classified data to see for yourself. HealthPartners excecutives are taking care of themselves as we are buckled and dimed (literally) with our wage proposals. 

Important Bargaining Update: 12/1/2021

After bargaining for 30 hours on the Final day of the contract a lot of progress has been made. The Employer and the Union have come to some Tentative Agreements, but more proposals have been dropped. In the very early morning hours on December 1, 2021 the Employer and the Union met for another joint session.

The Employer proposed a wage increase of, 0.25% in Year 1, 0% in Year 2, and 0% in Year 3. In efforts to get things moving the employer dropped the raise in out-of-pocket costs, and the outpatient hospital co-pay proposals.

We were not surprised at the insulting and incredibly low offer for wage increases as this is the current MO in HealthPartners Negotiations in recent Bargaining over the years. We just need to keep pushing back.
