Mandatory Overtime for RNs

As you may know, MAGE has been addressing this issue of mandatory overtime for our RN supervisors in DHHS for a very long time.  We have met with numerous state representatives and convened countless meetings with the department.

We are now advocating for a special 4%  wage increase for RN supervisors which would reduce the recruitment/retention problem, which we know is exacerbating the mandatory overtime problem.

I will be meeting with Senator Stabenaw next week, and I intend to bring this issue to her attention.

Please view the well researched Lansing State Journal article on this pressing issue (link below).  I hope you all take a moment to read it and maybe send a little email to your own state representative supporting the plight of your fellow MAGE members.  Thank you and thanks to all our RNs! 

Alan Quattrin, MAGE President
