JNESO FILES UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE WITH THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD (NLRB)
Management has begun to notify nurses at the Voorhees and Marlton facilities in Med/Surg, JRI, some surgical units such as OR, ENDO and PACU that they will make shift changes (days to nights), alter hours (more or in some cases less), eliminate positions **28 positions eliminated** implement on-call and weekend obligations never before required. All of this effective August 1st (actually July 28th) Your employer has inaccurately informed our members that the Union has agreed to the changes (They are lying). To be clear:
THE UNION HAS NOT AGREED TO ANY CHANGES
There are specific processes and requirements outlined in your Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that address layoffs, (that is what it is called when they eliminate positions – no matter what VIRTUA calls it) changes to staffing, shifts, start times and schedules.
VIRTUA IS BLATANTLY IGNORING THE CBA AND YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. IN RESPONSE, JNESO HAS FILED SEVERAL GRIEVANCES AND UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES ON YOUR BEHALF.
