Temporary Incentive Pays Ending

WSNA has been notified Spot Pay, Extra Weekend Spot Pay, and Mandatory Call Incentive will end on May 14, 2023 at St. Joseph Medical Center and St. Clare Hospital.

However, as you can see in the second to the last paragraph in the Incentive Pay Agreementthe incentive shifts are supposed to be honored for shifts that are beyond but were awarded before the expiration date.

We evaluate incentives on a pay period by pay period basis and need flexibility to adjust to changing needs and will notify the union if we believe adjustments are needed providing 14 calendar days advance notice. Duration will be at the discretion of management. That said, a nurse will receive incentive pay for any shift designated as an incentive shift at the time the nurse agreed to work it - even if the shift occurs after the end of the designated incentive period. If a shift becomes incentive eligible after the nurse has committed to the extra shift , the nurse will be eligible for the approved incentive.

If you have questions please contact any WSNA Local Unit Officer or Nurse Representative Barbara Friesen at bfriesen@wsna.org
