Union takes Jackson Health System to court over layoffs

Miami Herald, May 7, 2010

The Service Employees International Union announced it was filing an emergency lawsuit to stop Miami-based Jackson Health System from firing more than 170 nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals because it would greatly damage Jackson's ability to provide quality care. With about 400 Jackson Health System workers scheduled to have their last workday on May 6, the lawsuit alleges that some proposed layoffs will cause the governing body, the Public Health Trust, to violate its own bylaws requiring "one standard of patient care."
