Collective agreements give a well-defined evolution of the career of a caregiver. Registered nurses start as nurses and ride through the clinician, educator or manager track. In accordance with the 2018 collective agreements, nurses` salaries are the same in the three integrated clusters. It makes sense from a public order point of view. As taxpayers, we do not want increased staff costs to be the cause of medical inflation in the health sector. The Health Workers` Union (HSEU) has entered into agreements on the remuneration of nurses in various health groups and institutions, including the National University Health System (NUHS), SingHealth, National Healthcare Group (NHG) and NTUC Health Co-Operative. Care is one of the professions strongly supported by trade unions and the Health Services Union (HSEU) has been assiduously committed to the remuneration of carers in the form of collective agreements with the three integrated public health centres: Singhealth, NHG and NEHS. Note: The 2018 collective agreements all expired on March 31, 2020. We can expect that a new set of collective agreements will be developed and that agreements may take longer than usual because of the current pandemic. Based on HSEU agreements with NUHS, SingHealth and NHG, the maximum weekly working time for nurses is 42 hours for the regular position, 40 hours for a rotating position and 38 or 40 hours (depending on the hospital) for the permanent night shift. The agreements with LESNHS, SingHealth and NHG came into effect from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2020, while the agreement with NTUC Health Co-Operative is in effect from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022.
The salary ranges below are based on HSEU`s agreements with NNHS, SingHealth, NHG and NTUC Health Co-operative. It is not specified that temporary tutors and tupfer assistants require care skills. For example, a nurse who works in a hospital and works 6 nights a month (including 2 on weekends), a $200 station allowance, a night allowance of $120 and a night work allowance of $180. That would increase his base salary by $500. Gan also stated that there are shift work allowances and overtime for medical staff if they hold longer or longer positions during this period. If the nurse is on demand during the day of service, she receives a child care allowance even if she is not activated for the service. If she or she is activated for the service, the nurse will receive a reminder allowance that is in line with the overtime pay. 46 of these cases were from health care professionals whose work included direct contact with patients.
Temasek`s CEO, Ho Ching himself, has waded into the debate and noted that people who feel sponge pay is unfair should «stop complaining» and take the job. Compared to the average starting salaries of graduates in 2019, entry-to-care salaries actually pay better for ITE and Polytech graduates. The base salary margin for «Registered Nurse II» for NHS is $1,700 to $2,800. The salary range for nurses at NTUC Health Co-Operative is lower: there is also annual child leave of up to six days and family leave of up to three days for nurses. The application form for swabb and tef assistant positions indicates that potential deployment sites include community recovery facilities, government quarantine facilities and nursing homes. Based on studies, there were no proven epidemiological links showing that these health care workers were infected. However, a possible link between the physician and a covid-19 patient was not ruled out in one case in a private health facility.
