Double Time Incentive (DTI) for picking up open shifts on posted schedule, Extra Shift Incentive (ESI), and Spot Pay Bonus for Short Notice Shifts has been extended in qualified departments through October 2, 2021 Eligibility requirements and the departments included are unchanged.
WSNA is thankful management recognizes the need for more staff and is offering some incentives. However, we believe and have told CHI leadership repeatedly that all departments should be included. We also pointed out it is inequitable for only part-time nurses had to work above their normal work requirement to qualify for DTI. Unfortunately, CHI upper-level management continues to be uncompromising so the incentives remain limited to where and how they believe the incentives should be offered.
The departments eligible for DTI are as follows:
- Med/Surg 2 South
- Med/Surg 3 South
- Med/Surg 4 South
- Med/Surg 8
- Critical Care – ICU and PCU night shift only
Highlights of the Agreement:
Record your Spot Pay/DTI/ESI in the Exception Log on your unit.
Extra Shift Incentive $5/hour. May be stacked with other incentive pays providing the criteria for ESI has been met.
- 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 his/her assigned FTE during the work week in which he/she picks up the extra shift(s) in order to receive the incentive pay. If a short notice absence occurs in the workweek the extra shift is worked, the nurse will be ineligible for incentive pay
Spot Pay Shift Bonus $15/hour
Addresses unplanned absenteeism on short notice. Short notice is defined as agreement to work an unscheduled shift with 24 hours or less notice prior to the start of the shift.
A nurse will not be eligible for Spot Pay Shift Bonus if they are receiving DTI.
Double Time Incentive Pay (DTI)
When the core schedule has unfilled shifts, RNs will be encouraged to sign up to work extra shifts.
In the event more nurses volunteer and/or are signed up for a given incentive shift than needed, management will endeavor to rotate incentive shift opportunities.
