The HPAE Local 5094 Negotiating Committee encourages every member to participate in the upcoming vote to ratify the tentative terms of the new Agreement. The following issues were addressed in the new agreement:
- New language to prohibit management from using mandatory overtime as a staffing tool in the event of chronic staffing challenges.
- Clarification of the language used by our members to request that their salaries be adjusted when they are required to either work outside of their job classification or have a substantial increase in their job responsibilities.
- Performance evaluations will be changed from a 5 to 3 level rating system as well as an unsatisfactory score now treated as a written warning in lieu of suspension vs. a final warning.
- Strengthened the role of the Labor and Management Committee to include that we will meet with management at least 4 times per year to discuss any workplace issues.
- Almost 1/3 of the titles within our Local will receive a Market Rate Analysis to address the disparities of pay that currently exist throughout our membership. Some of the titles scheduled for the Market Rate Analysis are: Medical Technologist, User Support Specialist, Sr. Respiratory Therapist and Audiologist.
- 3-year contract with wage increases as follows: Year 1 [3%] , Year 2 [2.5%], Year 3 [3%]
