one reply stated that the organizing if mainly coming from one unit. why are others not involved? i know other units have issues. i really do not want to pay the dues, but what is upper management going to do? more support staff? that's great, but doesn't solve all the problems. just another bandaid. and, how long with the "changes" last??? and, when will be seeing them????
are there others that can't take a vacation because they do not have the vacation time to pay themselves?
how about re-imbursment for continueing education? i noticed that the other hospitals in our system get $1000 more a year than we do! what's up with that?
did anyone know that according to the union hospitals contract, they get more vacation time than we do, not to mention the split of sick time verses medical leave.
oh, and the pension with the union hospitals is better. in the past this has been a huge issue and a great scare tactic from upper management. you will not lose what has been put in your current pension, just gain a better one...
