Q: WHO IS UNAC/UHCP?
UNAC/UHCP (United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals) was founded in 1972 by registered nurses at Kaiser Fontana. Since that time, UNAC/UHCP has grown from a handful of nurses to represent over 32,000 health care professionals, including registered nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, physician assistants, optometrists, physical and occupational therapists, clinical lab scientists and a dozen other medical license types. UNAC/UHCP has over 20,000 members within the Kaiser system in Southern California and Hawaii, in a wide range of health care fields, and is a dynamic and rapidly-growing union.
In 2015 over 1,400 pharmacists of Kaiser Southern California voted to join UNAC/UHCP and form their own affiliate, United Pharmacists of Southern California (UPSC). UNAC/UHCP also represents pharmacists in Hawaii with the Kaiser-affiliated Maui Health System and inpatient pharmacists at a Southern California Tenet-owned medical center. UNAC/UHCP is known for being open, democratic and for the local control members have within their affiliates and chapters.
