Extra Shift Incentive – Specified Classifications - SCPMG Anesthesiology Technicians.

July 21, 2022

The Kaiser Permanente Southern California Region is experiencing a high Operating Room patient census resulting in an increased demand for related staffing as a result of COVID-19 impacts. Faced with this challenge, Southern California Permanente Medical Group (“SCPMG”) and USW- 7600 agreed to temporarily offer an "Extra Shift Incentive" to induce employees in the following specified SCPMG and KFH classifications to work extra shifts under SCPMG/KFH as specifically listed below:

Union Job Title Job Code

The specifics of the "Extra Shift Incentive" are as set forth below:

1. An additional shift is defined as hours worked in the care of patients that is in excess of 36
hours in one work week for 0.9 FTE staff and in excess of 40 hours in one work week for 1.0
FTE staff. If the staff member is routinely scheduled for four 12 hour shifts in one week (1.05
FTE), the additional shift definition for that week would be hours worked in the care of patients
that is in excess of 48 hours. In addition, for part-time staff, a minimum of 24 hours must first
be worked in the work week before being eligible for the incentive. Nonproductive hours do
not count toward eligibility. All scheduled shifts in place at the time of the agreement's effective
date may be eligible if all other criteria of the agreement are met.

2. Employee’s in identified aforementioned classifications who sign up for and are needed to
work additional shifts, for which they are not regularly scheduled, will be eligible to receive an
incentive payment for each additional shift worked as follows:

$100.00 for each additional 4 hour shift
$200.00 for each additional 8 hour shift
$250.00 for each additional 10 hour shift
$300.00 for each additional 12 hour shift

3. The Extra Shift Incentive is in addition to applicable overtime and differential provisions as
may be required by law and/or as set forth in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The "Extra
Shift Incentive" will be in effect from 7:00 a.m. on August 2, 2022, until 7:00 a.m., on October
1, 2022. Any extension of the "Extra Shift Incentive" beyond the aforementioned time period
must be made by mutual agreement between the parties.

4. Once an employee’s extra shift has been confirmed on the work schedule, the employee cannot
be cancelled.

5. If the employee calls in sick or takes an educational day for one of their regularly scheduled
shifts in a week where they are also scheduled for an "Extra Shift Incentive" shift, they will no
longer be eligible for the incentive. Staff are free to seek approval from their manager to cancel
education time so that they may work their regular shift(s) if available or make themselves
available for extra shifts.
