Your contract is being violated! A yes vote on the memorandum of understanding will uphold the clear contract language which states preference will be given to regularly scheduled staff.
MNA is forcing this vote despite a signed MOU agreement between administration and Local #17, citing a “different interpretation”.
PDR are not regularly scheduled and do not have preference under the contract and should not take a job away from regularly scheduled staff.
PDR do have preference over outside applicants. And in situations where the in house PDR nurse has met the job description requirements over the regularly scheduled in house applicant.
