Kavika has worked at Kaiser Permanente as a Transporter for three years. Last year, he applied for a Maintenance Worker 1 position. He was denied even though he was fully qualified, and he was never given an in-person interview. Instead, Kaiser gave the position to a non- Kaiser worker. To make matters worse, in January 2014 Kavika was notified that Kaiser was eliminating the Transport department and that he would be losing his job. Kavika filed a grievance with our Contract Enforcement team, and on April 14, 2014, he was offered the Maintenance position! He started work as a Maintenance worker on Monday, April 27th.
