To read a clear guide of the process for calculating resource seniority, please read this document which was created in 2010 after the resource nurses voted to be included in the contract along with FTE nurses. We think this will answer your questions

Attendance Policy

  • The attendance policy has been an ongoing concern for nurses and administration. For a summary from past newsletters, please click here
  • We reached a compromise in our 2011 negotiations which made the policy less rigid. To see that change, please refer to Art. VII of your contract.”
  • However, even though we reached a compromise, any corrective action issued under the policy must still have "proper cause.” If you have received a corrective action under this policy that you do not believe is fair, please contact your grievance committee representative, steward, officer, or labor representative
