ESC Starts 2018 by Welcoming More Medical and Legal Professionals to IFPTE

In December, 226 Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists working in Home Health at Kaiser Permanente in Northern California overwhelmingly voted to join the Engineers and Scientists of California (ESC/IFPTE Local 20).

With an 84% “yes” vote and nearly 80% of the 226 members participating, this group has truly demonstrated their strength and unity.

These medical professionals join more than 1,300 Clinical Lab Scientists and Medical Laboratory Technicians, Optometrists and Optometric Assistants, and Genetic Counselors and Coordinators throughout Northern California Kaiser Permanente Facilities who are also represented by ESC/IFPTE Local 20.

As a member of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, ESC/IFPTE Local 20 is an active participant in the Kaiser Permanente Labor-Management Partnership.

Most recently, professionals at Centro Legal de la Raza unanimously voted to join ESC/IFPTE Local 20. This wall-to-wall unit of 39 professionals consists of attorneys, paralegals, organizers, and administrative staff. These members are on the frontlines of the fight to protect immigrant workers’ and tenants’ rights.

Centro Legal de la Raza staff are joining other legal professionals working at Legal Aid Work who are also represented by ESC.

IFPTE welcomes our newest brothers and sisters to the family and labor movement!
