Recently, Director Czyson sent a memo giving paramedics that have not yet bid the chance to increase their FTE to 1.0. This memo, see below for a link, did not come out until after the bid already started. The Local’s Leadership needs to know how many paramedics, that have already completed their bid, this would affect. In other words: If you had the opportunity to increase at the time of your bid, would you have and/or would it have changed your bid? Contact Amanda Layne at email@example.com or Brett Hopper at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if this memo affects you.
A test email was sent out from the union website last night. If you did not receive this test email, we either do not have your email address listed correctly or we do not have an email address listed for you. An email address is essential for electronic voting to send instructions and voter information.
IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE A TEST EMAIL PLEASE SEND ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. AJLAYNE0248@GMAIL.COM
**For those that gave me their email addresses this week, your address has not been updated yet and you do not need to send me your address again.
“It is that time of year again! We will be starting the bid Monday, January 14, 2019 and will be completed Thursday, February 14, 2019. The bid schedules, bid memo, area schedules, bid rules and bid calendar are in your Allina email and in a link at the bottom of this post.
The schedules for BLS and bid rules associated with the BLS bid are still being finalized and will be posted and emailed to all staff by the end of next week.
Please check your bid time and date and let us know as soon as possible if you foresee any issues with your bid time. Remember that the first 100 paramedics will have 30 minutes to bid and all other employees will have 40 minutes. Remember that we cannot pass you if you are working for Allina and on a call. Please also check to see that your FTE is listed correctly. If there is a discrepancy please contact me as soon as possible.
We will use Everbridge to page you when it is your time to bid. Please let us know if there is a better way to contact you. The number to reach us at once the bid has started is 651-241-9166. Please call us if you are working and let us know. Remember that dispatch does not need to send you back to base to bid. If you have any questions prior to that please contact either Steve Eiden or myself.
Schedules bid each day will be entered into Aladtec by the time we leave the office for the night. Please make sure to check that your bidded schedule and PTO was entered correctly. Please contact us as soon as possible if there are any errors or concerns. Please click the link below for all of the bid materials.”
