Victory: Kaiser Permanente MOA Housekeeping Aide – Overtime & Work Opportunity

On December 12, 2022 the evening shift experienced inadequate workload distribution. Workers were instructed to include additional duties onto their load. Committee Leaders Claire Rabe & George Kawelo discovered that management did not outreach to offer overtime (OT) & temporary work opportunity to backfill, and staff. They further investigated to confirm that Rogelio Baldonado Housekeeping Aide was not contacted. Rogelio indicated that he was willing to work if he was notified.

Issue was presented to the unit manager that Temporary Work Opportunity & Overtime to be offered to Bargaining Unit Members in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Employer resolved the matter by compensating Rogelio. He received backpay of 8 hours overtime overtime. Union YES!
