Two nurses who are members with the State of Ohio recently received significant settlements after overtime was improperly denied. Due to no fault of their own, the nurses were placed on a “no patient contact” list temporarily. The members had no knowledge of the reason they were on the list and were unable to work overtime, which was a significant monetary loss.
The members stood together and contacted the Member Resource Center. Through the arbitration process, the members showed that this loss of overtime hours denied due process. A settlement was reached with the state, which had a combined value of over $45,000.
If you believe your contract is being violated at work, do not hesitate to contact the Member Resource Center. The Member Resource Center is open from 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM each Monday through Friday. “Your Member Resource Center has your back!”
