President’s Message:

Bargaining for your new contract continues. Contact a Local Officer immediately if you feel there has been a contract violation.

WEATHER EMERGENCY: ECHC clarified that while the Governor may declare a State of Emergency, County employees are expected to report to work during inclement weather unless the County Executive declares an emergency closing. Health Care facilities do not close down. In accordance with Essex County Policy and Procedures Chapter V, Section 4.

STAFFING: 1 RN should not be scheduled alone on any unit. ECHC stated they always schedule 2-3 RN’s per unit, and call-outs cause short staffing, and HA’s are always present. Please remember, you are obligated to report unsafe staffing! Call your ADN to report unsafe staffing! Submit a Short Staffing Forms if you are left alone! YOUR LICENSE & PATIENT SAFETY depends on it!

CONFIDENTIALITY: JNESO has requested that ECHC remind Nursing Managers and ADN’s that talking about employee disciplines and personal or medical matters will not be tolerated. Remember, would YOU like people talking about your confidential issues?

Family Medical Leave Act [FMLA]: Good news!! Essex County handles all FMLA Forms!! No documentation filters through ECHC. FMLA Forms can be completed and submitted online. ECHC is only notified of FMLA approval. If you have a chronic condition or illness that qualifies for FMLA, ECHC cannot use that time off against you!!

 
Your Local Officers continue to work hard on your behalf, if you are disciplined for any reason, please contact your Chief Steward Bola Asenuga.
