The Extra Shift Incentive pay of $5.00 per hour has been extended to April 3, 2021.
This is in addition to the Spot Pay and the Double Time Incentive Pay
Extra Shift Incentive:
Effective August 25, 2019: The Employer and the Association agree that in response to staffing issues, a shift incentive of $5.00 per hour will be added to the RN’s regular rate of pay for nurses who work an extra shift in patient care. The purpose of this incentive is to encourage nurses to voluntarily sign up to work extra open shifts beyond their FTE. This incentive will be available through December 31, 2020.
Nurse Eligibility Requirements:
The nurse must work a direct patient care shift
The nurse must have an assigned FTE of 0.6 or greater
The nurse must work her/his assigned FTE during the work week in which she/he picks up the extra shift(s) in order to receive the incentive pay. If a short notice absence occurs in the work week the extra shift is worked, the nurse will be ineligible for incentive pay.
Pre-negotiation Survey There are still many nurses who have not taken the pre-negotiation survey. It is super important! If you have not taken it yet please take a few minutes and take it now.
If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.
By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.
WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.
If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.
