GRADY EMS MASS CALL OUT
GRADY EMS MASS CALL OUT
Grady is proposing an upevil, with the new schedules brought forth via Grady EMS supervision. IN RETURN WERE PLANNING TO HAVE A MASS CALL OUT DAY, IN PROTEST OF NEW SHIFT CHANGES.
It has been brought to the attention of Grady EMS employees via upper management that there is once again going to be a wide scale schedule change, for all employees within Grady EMS (EMT's,Paramedics AND LOGISTICS). While change is necessary at times, the way supervision has gone about the change is clearly causing the moral in Grady EMS to significantly decrease, causing a consistently high turnover rate, decreased level of patient care, hence OVERALL putting the citizens of Fulton County at risk or in danger of not receiving appropriate prehospital care. Currently, Grady EMS is on a 39.5 to 40 hour set day a week rotation, which most employees enjoy and have built their lives around. Grady EMS is wanting to change its scheduling to a MANDATORY rotating (California) schedule. California rotation not only makes it mandatory for all employees to work overtime, no matter your seniority, it CAN and WILL force some to work weekends. As of now, the options given via survey that were offered were Option 1. (MTW and MTWT of the following week and Option 2. ROTATING WEEKENDS). To be clear both are considered a CALIFORNIA ROTATING
But what is not being told is............... IF you DO NOT RECEIVE THE SHIFT YOU REQUEST, THERE IS A GREAT CHANCE THAT YOU WILL BE PLACED ON THE ROTATING WEEKENDS ( F,S,S OR F,S,S,M)
THIS TREATMENT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE TOLERATED, ESPECIALLY WHEN GRADY EMT'S AND PARAMEDICS CONTROL THE REVENUE. WERE PLANNING A MASS CALL OUT THE DAY BEFORE SHIFT BIDS NOVEMBER 14, 2019 TO BRING AWARENESS TO US BEING UPSET ABOUT THE CONSTANT SHIFT CHANGES. EVERY TIME THERE IS A MASS SHIFT CHANGE THERES ALSO A MASS EXITING OF GRADY EMS EMPLOYEES. WEVE TO OFFER OTHER SUGGESTIONS TO HELP SUCH AS ( SHIFT DIFFERENTIAL FOR ALL PRN TO COVER NIGHT AND WEEKEND( THE REAL ISSUE), STIPEND PAY, EMPLOYEE RETENTION, ALL WHICH HAVE BEEN IGNORED.
ALL MEDIA OUTLETS ( SOCIAL MEDIA ,FOX 5, AJC, 11 ALIVE) WILL BE CONTACTED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF GRADY NOT HAVING SUFFICIENT COVERAGE FOR THE CITIZENS OF ATLANTA.
PLEASE SIGN YOUR SUPPORT OF THE MISTREATMENT GOING ON WITH GRADY EMS.
