More than 75,000 healthcare workers began a strike Wednesday morning at 6 a.m. and will continue until Friday morning, making it the largest healthcare strike in American history.

The Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions, representing healthcare workers and support staff for one of the largest not-for-profit medical systems, announced last week that it would strike if contract negotiations failed with management.

Critical patient care staff through the Kaiser Permanente system, including EMTs, nurses, and radiological and lab technicians, will be taking a three-day walkout against unfair labor practices in California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.
