                      Marlton Members: We are in urgent need of a Shop Steward at Marlton! To protect your legal employment rights, it is critical to have Stewards at Marlton. Please consider representing your colleagues by calling the JNESO office, or contacting a Local Officer.

                      MANDATORY TRAINING IS CONSIDERED HOURS WORKED!!!
                      Be sure to schedule mandatory training prior to preliminary schedule postings!
                       
                      Article 26 of your contract, Education and In-Service Time: 26.5:
                       
                      Employees will be paid at their base rate for the time spent in educational classes/in-service which are approved and/or assigned by the Nurse Manager. These hours will be part of the regular work week and regularly scheduled unless otherwise agreed upon between the employee and the Manager.
                      CHECK YOUR PATHWAYS: Concerns raised about meeting your obligations to transfer within your pathways. Article 49.1 of your contract addresses if a nurse does not have the training and/or experience to work in a certain clinical area of practice.
                      DENIAL OF PTO: Article 47 of your contract addresses Scheduling and Availability:
                       
                      Request for the use of PTO time must be submitted to the manager on the approved request form. 
                      (8.h) Once the permanent schedule is posted, coverage for additional time off will be the responsibility of the employee. PTO approval shall not be unreasonably denied and request for additional time off shall be answered promptly. 
                      ON-GOING CANCELLATION/ ON-CALL ISSUE: Article 48.5 of your contract states: 
                       
                      An employee who has been canceled may, by mutual agreement, be placed on call of the shift and if so designated, will be paid the applicable on-call rate for the hours on call. In the event that an employee is called into work from an on-call status, the employee will be paid at a rate of time and one-half for the hours worked. In the event that the Employer fails to call the employee’s home as set forth in Section 48.2 above and the employee is canceled upon arrival at work, the employee will be paid for two (2) hours.

                      Meal Breaks: The Fair Labor Standards Act stipulates that ordinarily, an employer must pay workers if the break is less than 30 minutes. If the employer requires the employee to stay in his or her work area and perform any work, then the employer must pay the employee, even if the break is 30 minutes or more. Similarly, if the employer asks an employee to do any work during the break, it may have to pay for the entire break. This is the law. If a manager tells you otherwise, ask them to call the NJ Department of Wage and Hour to check at 609-292-1704. For questions, visit the US Department of Labor: Wage and Hour Division website

                       
                      Safety and Security at the Workplace: Some Nurses have brought to our attention safety and security concerns working at the Emergency Department at the Virtua Voorhees and Camden locations. Some of these concerns include but are not limited to, patients coming in with a variety of weapons, short staffing, lack of security staff, long walks to parking spots at night, lack of metal detectors, and security cameras…etc.  Our local leadership is currently addressing these issues with Virtua. If you feel unsafe at work for any reason, first, call Virtua Security then call the Virtua Corporate Compliance Hotline at (800) 268-0502 to report the safety concern/incident.

                      It is JNESO’s obligation to preserve your rights, and we are committed to protecting your rights under collective bargaining. If you have any questions or concerns please contact your Labor Rep. Ellena Osborne.
