Jackson Health System contract revisions to cut workers' pay 5%

Miami Herald, April 6, 2010

Expressing concerns that nurses may be shifted into positions for which they have no expertise, the executive committee of the Public Health Trust rushed to approve four Miami-based Jackson Health System union contract revisions—hoping the cuts would take effect on April 18. The revisions in effect would reduce by 5% the salaries of 10,000 hospital workers, saving Jackson $30 million this fiscal year. However, Miami-Dade County spokeswoman Victoria Mallette said the commission could not act on the contracts until they were approved by the full PHT boarda process that could delay final approval by a month, the Miami Herald reports.
