VACATION SCHEDULING

UPDATE
(August 6, 2021): A revised MOU (click here) has been signed that ends the trimester portion of the trial effective January 1, 2022.

Per the Side Letter on Vacation Scheduling (see page 57 of the contract),in Summer 2020 we formed a joint labor-management task force to explore a new way to do vacation scheduling.  The outcome of that task force is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that would revise how we do vacation scheduling.  




FTE CHANGES

OSUNO worked with senior nursing leadership to develop a standard for FTE changes in UH.  (The James refused to participate.)
