CONGRATULATIONS ON RATIFICATION OF YOUR NEW TWO (2) YEAR CONTRACT!
Your JNESO contract for 2018-2019 was approved by the Essex Board of Freeholders on December 11th, 2019!
NURSE PRACTICE COMMITTEE [Article 39] to begin soon. If interested in participating contact Ozcan Coban, Vice President.
CLOCKING IN/OUT: RNs have raised concerns about removing the KRONOS clock from the Lobby and the delays incurred through Security initiatives. This issue will be addressed at our next Labor Management Meeting. Please contact a Local Officer with any concerns. ANNUAL EVALUATION: Please read before signing in order to address any discrepancies.
FMLA: If you qualify for FMLA please be sure to apply for it! This law is to protect you, so that your time out for a qualified illness or family care cannot be used against you. To maintain confidentiality, FMLA applications should be done online, printed, sent or taken downtown to Newark to the Hall of Records.
BENEFIT TIME: ECHC confirmed that benefit time in Kronos will differ from time on the PD20 because PD20 is a 1 (one) year snapshot while Kronos is current time. Check your accrued time and any concerns should be reported to HR. LGS: ECHC stated it will be changing from Kronos to the LGS system at the end of 2020 for time and attendance, payroll, and LOA’s. Currently LGS is used for payroll, you are encouraged to check LGS for accuracy.
SHORT STAFFING: Please don’t ever work alone! Patient safety and your Nursing License would be in jeopardy. If you accept an unsafe assignment YOU are responsible for everything that happens. Fill out the Short Staffing Form and check the box for Endorsement of Liability of the unit to your Supervisor who is on duty at the time, and who you reported the unsafe conditions to. Protect your patients, protect yourself!
Your Local Officers continue to work hard on your behalf, if you are disciplined for any reason, please contact your Chief Steward Bola Asenuga.
