Incentive Pay Extended through July 24, 2021

St Clare proposed extending the Double Time Incentive (DTI) for picking up open shifts on posted schedule, and the $15.00/Hour Spot Pay Bonus for Short Notice Shifts (less than 24 hours’ notice). Eligibility requirements for incentives remain the same as do the departments included. The Incentive Program will be extended in qualified departments through July 24, 2021.
The departments eligible for DTI are as follows:

  • ER – Night shift only
  • ICU – Night shift only
  • Imaging

WSNA did respond to manage­ment letting them know we appre­ciate them recog­nizing the need for more staff and offering incen­tives. However, WSNA still believes it would make more sense to include all depart­ments and leave the option of offering the DTI shifts to managers. We do not think manage­ment would have anything to lose but much to gain. The DTI shifts would still be in control of management and no area of need would inadver­tently be overlooked. Never­the­less, what was offered is helpful and we support them imple­menting the exten­sion with the hope consid­er­a­tion will be given to making it house wide.
