We have a signed CAP program that provides bonuses of $1000-$2000 per year to RNs who attain and maintain a higher level of clinical practice. Details can be found here.
We won a major victory when we settled a grievance concerning overtime that placed Helen Porter RNs on the same wage scale as Porter Hospital RNs. The grievance settlement led to an average base pay increase of $2.72.
Jerilyn Langsdon, RN, Helen Porter Memory Care Unit representative, started the ball rolling on this back in August. When Jerilyn received a memo that PMC was changing the overtime pay structure at Helen Porter, she recognized it as a potential contract violation and contacted her union.
We filed a grievance, which ultimately led to this settlement.
We are fighting back and fighting forward. Come talk with your colleagues about the year ahead.
