After more than two years of negotiations, still no deal between Kaiser Permanente and Unite Here Local 5.
The strike is expected to last six days. Kaiser Permanente has closed 10 health care facilities and consolidated several others in an attempt to maintain some level of health care in Hawaii. The Hilo and Kailua-Kona offices are expected to remain open during the strike, which will run through Saturday. Aloha, Russ.
