Paychecks due Friday, October 21, 2022

WSNA has heard from many nurses with concerns regarding this Friday’s paychecks. We reviewed the communications and FAQs management sent out to all staff. We also spoke with Marie LaMarche, Division Director, Employee & Labor Relations VMFH. She confirmed employees will be paid their full FTE at their base rate of pay, plus any premiums or overtime payments received on their October 7 paycheck. For example if you are a 1.0 FTE you will receive 80 hours at your base rate of pay plus the premiums or overtime you received on your October 7, 2022 paycheck. Per diems will be paid based on their pay period average of what they earned between January and September 2022.

Marie was unable to provide a date when the Kronos system will be restored. In the meantime please keep track of all hours and all premiums due. WSNA will continue to monitor this situation closely.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact one of our WSNA Unit Reps, Local Unit Officers, or Nurse Rep.
