Your bargaining team is pleased to again state that we have only gains to report from our contract negotiations with our KPNW management team.
- Incentive pay has been agreed to improve to double time for all extra shifts agreed upon within 24 hours of shift start.
- Our ONA CA 51 education fund has been doubled in amount to $200 per person in a regular position. These funds may now also be utilized to defray the cost of certifications or recertifications.
- Differential increases as follows: Charge nurse to $3.00/hr, Evening shift to $3.00/hr, Night shift to $5.90/hr, Standby differential $4.75/hr.
- Together with the OFNHP RNs ONA CA 51 has also gained a local PNW pay bump of $2.50/hour at each wage step.
Each of these gains (again no concessions or losses) will be in addition to those negotiated in the national agreement.
A special thanks to the OFNHP RN bargaining team for our joint economics. Thank you also to our dedicated internal organizers, Sharon Culley and Christian Berk.
Congratulations ONA CA 51.
