The hospital has come to your Local Union Leaders requesting that we delay the April 1, 2020 three percent (3%) raise until July in the hope of minimizing lay-offs or low census (daily layoffs) during this COVID-19 pandemic. We are solic­iting your feedback. Would you be willing to agree to a delay of your raise if it was condi­tioned on the hospital’s agree­ment to provide paid admin­is­tra­tive leave (so you don’t have to burn your own accrued time) to nurses who are unable to work because of exposure or poten­tial exposure to COVID-19?

If you did not receive the email with the link to the vote survey or have questions about the delay, please contact Carmen Garrison at The survey will close at noon on Wednesday, April 15.
