Miami-Dade County leaders want bigger union pay cuts at Jackson Health System

Miami Herald, April 15, 2010

As Jackson Health System plans to cut expenses, Miami-Dade County executives want bigger pay cuts than union members agreed to. At a meeting of a Public Health Trust committee, Assistant County Manager Alena Tejada Hudak said the mayor and manager had mentioned this issue to Jackson executives 10 days ago and were surprised nothing had apparently been done. Jackson is counting on quick approval on pay cuts to save it $23 million for the remainder of this fiscal year as it works to reduce a $230 million deficit, the Miami Herald reports.
