ti1987 Posted November 9, 2015 Share Posted November 9, 2015 Vascular Surgery PA Rochester, NY 36hr x 50 hr a week Rotating shifts without differential Work 1 in 5 weekends for rounding and take call No compensation for weekend rounding or call because the hospital states its built in the yearly salary and I'm a salaried employee Work holidays w/o extra pay 4 weeks PTO 5 days CME, 1500 3 yrs experience Recent negotiations have reached a standstill. The AAPA salary report, NCCPA data and bureau of labor statistics data (hospital reported)has been presented to HR compensation managers to no avail. The hospital stated that the AAPA salary report findings were incorrect as the data is self-reported and inflated. Although, the 3 above data reports are roughly 1k-2k apart yearly. With the above data they only provided a 1-2% raise Problem A is obviously the hourly wage but the hospital states we are compensated fairly. They refuse to share any data they have from a recent market analysis either Problem B is the weekend rounding and call without compensation. In the health system PA's are the only employees who do not get compensated (MDs, RNs, LPNs, etc all do). Based on this it may appear that RNs are being compensated better annually then PAs The hospital is undergoing a merger currently. The other hospital becoming a part of the health system compensates there PAs better hourly as well as any other time they are present in the hospital. It's obviously frustrating and disappointing to know that the compensation in one health system is not transparent. It also appears based on the employee handbook the that annual review is not occurring at all Any recommendations? How often should raises be occurring? How much? What is the best compensation data? My colleagues and I are not only trying to unite, but also inform other midlevel providers the market value of a PA to be properly and fairly compensated Thanks for any advice Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
