CHI Harrison Medical Center Wages for missed rest periods

We also have grievances for the same issue of overtime for missed rest periods for Harrison Dietary & Service and ProTech. 

You should have received this from your employer:

Dear Nurse,

On Friday, June 9, 2017 you will receive an additional direct deposit for payment of a UFCW RN rest break arbitration settlement.  The settlement payment is for a daily overtime rate applied to missed rest breaks from March 15, 2015 through March 11, 2017.

Since missed rest breaks were paid at straight time, we are paying an additional half-time for any missed rest breaks reported and paid for during this period, assuming they meet the following criteria:
  1. The entire shift was worked.
  2. No duplication of overtime pay would result.
  3. The rest break was not already paid at a weekly overtime rate.
A second back payment award will occur for the period of March 11, 2017 through the date of implementation of the calculation of missed rest breaks at a daily overtime rate.  We will notify you of this payment date when set. 

Moving forward payroll will be paying missed rest breaks for RN’s at a daily overtime rate, assuming the above criteria is met. Please call Vickie Lackman if you have any questions.
