We have a new dedicated email address to focus and streamline all PECSH caregiver questions around COVID-19. If you have a question, please email it to: PECSHcovid19@minurses.org Your PECSH Executive Team will respond to all inquiries as quickly and thoroughly as we are able.
The PECSH Executive Team (along with UAW leadership) met with Alan Vierling today to get up to date on the hospital’s preparedness for COVID-19. Alan has committed to maintaining regular channels of communication with union leadership at Sparrow around this evolving issue, and we are committed to keeping our members up to date and answering questions to the best of our ability as they arise.
The most important update we have is that we have scheduled effects bargaining for Monday, March 16, where we will negotiate for solutions to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on PECSH caregivers. Our focus in these negotiations will be on ensuring the safest working conditions possible and on protecting wages and benefits for those who are unable to work due to COVID-19.
