BARGAINING UNIT: KP PROFESSIONALS

Alicia “Shep” Sheprow has worked as a PA in Urgent Care at multiple locations for almost 3 decades. During her Kaiser career, she has served in various union roles, and enjoys being able to assist union members, educate everyone, and spread the importance of union activism and involvement. She admits to weirdly enjoying contract bargaining, constitutional and contract interpretation and teaching the skills to fellow members so they can be the best advocate for all OFNHP members. When not at the union office, she can be found seeking Big Foot on any forest trail, herding her peacocks and cats, or snorkeling with manta rays.

Mitchell has been working at Kaiser since 2017, and has been working as a union employee for the last 18 years of his working life. For most of that time he has been a steward, including for almost two years at Kaiser. “The reason I get involved is just to ensure that the employees are treated fairly and get the best possible benefits,” says Karr. Karr graduated from Northern Arizona University and serves as an RN at the Beaverton Urgent Care clinic.

BARGAINING UNIT: KP REGISTERED NURSES
FOCUS: INPATIENT RNS

Katie Johnson is an RN team lead in the outpatient oncology department for Kaiser in Longview, where she has worked for the past two years. A graduate of the College of Southern Maryland, Johnson has been an RN for the past twelve years. While she was SEIU represented in her first graduate position, she eventually worked for a non-union employer and, as she says, “learned the hard way” about the union difference. When she started working for Kaiser in Colorado she became a union member and never looked back. Johnson has been a steward and worked on the Westside location’s Hospital Staffing Committee, and even acted as one of the representatives for their heated mediation process. She has a four year old son and is working to build up her farm with her family.

BARGAINING UNIT: KP TECHNICAL EMPLOYEES

Keri Farraro has been a surgical tech for over 15 years now and her worksite is at Westside Medical Center as a Lead Surgical Tech in the Operating Room. She learned through years of unhealthy workplaces that employment in a unionized environment is the way to go. There are better protections for the employees and the patients are safer. She has been a steward for a few years and was on the tech bargaining team recently. When not working she enjoys outdoor activities and spending time with her family.
