Reminder to all nurses
Please check your pay stubs regularly. With the new payroll system we have had many issues and errors including overpayment and underpayments. It is your responsibility to check and ensure the stub is correct. There are time lines outlined in the Collective Agreement that must be adhered to in terms of recouping losses on both sides. Seniority hours, Vacation Entitlements and Pension Benefits can be affected by errors. Please ensure accuracy of your pay statements.
Be sure to ask the mandator these questions
• Confirm the person who is mandating you is out of scope, ie, Supervisor, Manager, NOT CRN or timekeeper
• Confirm that you are being mandated and for what length of time
– Determine if you are physically/mentally able
– Remember you will have to prove/justify inability
• Confirm/question that all avenues have been exhausted
– Anticipated or unanticipated need?
– No ability to redistribute resources?
– Already offered as voluntary overtime to appropriate personnel?
Please complete Notification to Union of Mandatory Overtime Form and forward to Local 10 office
For additional information please look under “MEMBERS” Heading, for drop down “Mandatory Overtime”

Re: Exercise caution when posting on social media
Members across the province are experiencing the first-hand effects of the government cuts to front line health care services. Understandably, this is leading to frustration and anger.
We must caution you to please be mindful of what you post on social media. The repercussions from “speaking your mind” on social media can be far-reaching. It can result in disciplinary action. In extreme cases, it can lead to termination by the employer or the revoking of your license by the College.
We encourage you to contact the MNU provincial office if you have any questions or concerns. In the meantime, please read our article Exercising Caution when posting on Social Media
