Hazard Pay Petition
Dear RI Hospital UNAP Member,
I'll make this quick.
We were all understandably outraged when Lifespan announced recently that it was doling out performance bonuses for select managers while continuing to rebuff hazard pay requests from frontline workers.
It's wrong. They know it's wrong, and now they're hoping we'll be quiet and just go away.
Can you take less than a minute, right now, to sign a petition from Local 5098 and our sisters and brothers in Teamsters Local 251 calling on Lifespan to reconsider its "special management compensation program" and begin recognizing the sacrifices and contributions of all hospital employees?
We understand that many managers have performed admirably during the COVID crisis, but it's UNAP and 251 members who are putting themselves and their families at risk everyday to keep Rhode Island safe. At the very minimum, that commitment deserves Dr. Babineau's respect. He's playing favorites with Federal stimulus dollars and it's up to you and me to keep sounding the alarm.
Help us spread the word by signing now and encouraging others to show their support.
Frank Sims, RN, president
