A message from L167 Secretary Amanda Layne:
It is that time of year again! We will be starting the bid Wednesday, February 5, 2020 and will be completed Friday, March 6, 2020. The bid schedules, bid memo, area schedules, bid rules and bid calendar are attached. These will also be posted on the union website.
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 HipLink 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. All requests for round 2 PTO will be done through Aladtec.
There was only one rule change – an increase from 16 to 18 paramedics that are allowed to not bid a weekend requirement.
Talk to you soon,
