Message from Secretary Amanda Layne

Hello All,

It is that time of year again!  We will be starting the bid Monday, July 8, 2019 and will be completed Tuesday, August 6, 2019.  The bid schedules, bid memo, area schedules, bid rules and bid calendar are attached. 

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 120 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, this means you are listed incorrectly with HR.  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 you would like to be called or texted instead.  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.  All requests for round 2 PTO will be done through Aladtec.

There was one change to the bidding rules this time around.  We increased the number of paramedics that are allowed to bid a no weekend option from 10 to 16.

If at any time you have any questions about the bid or process please do no hesitate to contact Steve Eiden or myself.  We are here to help!?

Talk to you soon,

Amanda Layne
