Autonomy in Self Scheduling
We, the nurses and nursing assistants of Banner Health, petition those responsible for implementing the assigned weekend schedules effective January of 2020.
To date, we have enjoyed the autonomy of being able to self schedule. The demands of our job already leave much out of our control, so being able to have control of our schedule was empowering.
We are now forced to work days we may not be able to, or days that may conflict with our schedules outside of work. More importantly than that, this sweeping decision was made without taking into consideration the voice of your most valued employees, those working the frontlines of healthcare for Banner, who are directly impacted by this change.
We demand that our voice be heard, that our self scheduling remain autonomous, and that we are taken into consideration for any future sweeping changes directly affecting us, your frontline employees.
