Respiratory Care Practioner Incentive

USW Local 7600 Leadership and Kaiser Permanente have signed an agreement for extra shift pay incentive for Respiratory Care Practitioners that will be in effect from 7:00 a.m. on December 27, 2020 until 7:00 a.m. on January 4, 2021.

The extra shift incentive will be available to Respiratory Care Practitioners to work in the medical centers, caring for patients.

RTs 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:

  • $150 for each additional 8-hour shift
  • $200 for each additional 10-hour shift
  • $250 for each additional 12-hour shift

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. 

At this point, KP has only agreed for RTs to receive this incentive, just know that USW Local 7600 leadership is actively FIGHTING for other classifications to receive an incentive as well!  Please call Liz cuevas vice president at 909-202-0064 if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay safe, in solidarity,

USW Local 7600 President
