As this public health crisis ramps up once again, it is imperative that management ensure a safe working environment for all our members! That includes Safe Staffing, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and ensuring management follows all health & safety guidelines as prescribed by OSHA and the Department of Health.

JNESO is aware that management at your facility on January 3, 2022, canceled elective procedures and unilaterally deployed staff from departments where work is significantly reduced to areas where there is not enough staff to cover the volume of activity.

The hospital will return to normal elective procedures on Monday, Jan. 10, 2022. The contractual $5.00 float differential should be applied and, where appropriate, the $420.00 crisis pay incentive. Check upcoming paystubs to ensure the differential was received.

Currently, all staff in patient care areas should be wearing goggles or a face shield along with an N95, those caring for COVID patients should also be wearing an isolation gown.

JNESO will continue to ensure management at your facility ensures a safe work environment for our members as we enter the third year of this Covid public health crisis.

Please continue to Stay Safe! For questions or concerns, contact a Local Officer or your Labor Rep. Aisha Harrison (below).
