The Extra Shift Incen­tive pay of $5.00 per hour has been extended to April 3, 2021.

This is in addition to the Spot Pay and the Double Time Incen­tive Pay

Extra Shift Incentive:

Effec­tive August 25, 2019: The Employer and the Associ­a­tion agree that in response to staffing issues, a shift incen­tive of $5.00 per hour will be added to the RN’s regular rate of pay for nurses who work an extra shift in patient care. The purpose of this incen­tive is to encourage nurses to volun­tarily sign up to work extra open shifts beyond their FTE. This incen­tive will be avail­able through December 31, 2020.

Nurse Eligi­bility Requirements:

  • The nurse must work a direct patient care shift
  • The nurse must have an assigned FTE of 0.6 or greater
  • The nurse must work her/​his assigned FTE during the work week in which she/​he picks up the extra shift(s) in order to receive the incen­tive pay. If a short notice absence occurs in the work week the extra shift is worked, the nurse will be ineli­gible for incen­tive pay.

Pre-negoti­a­­tion Survey
There are still many nurses who have not taken the pre-negoti­a­­tion survey. It is super impor­tant! If you have not taken it yet please take a few minutes and take it now.
