Jackson Health System union rejects pay cut, sets new vote

Miami Herald, April 27, 2010

One Jackson Health System labor union has rejected a request by Miami-Dade County leaders to give up an additional $50 per pay period, and plans to hold a new vote among its members, Jackson officials announced. At the monthly meeting of the Public Health Trust, Jackson Chief Operating Officer David Small said the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union local told Jackson Health System it would not budge on the premium pay issue, but needs to hold a new ratification vote because some union members complained that the materials issued before the first vote were misleading, the Miami Herald reports.
