Before I worked at KP, I was an assistant manager at a company that didn’t have a union, UBTs or a partnership. The manager made all of the decisions. The manager wanted to let a person go, but couldn’t tell me a good reason why. I said, ‘We need to give her another chance if it’s not because of her job performance.’ I could have lost my job for speaking up, but it worked out fine for both of us. They put it in my hands to train her.
