Union hearing set on Jackson Health System layoffs

Miami Herald, May 12, 2010

A union hearing for a temporary injunction to stop the Jackson Health System from implementing layoffs is scheduled May 13, the Service Employees International Union announced on its website. The lawsuit comes in response to the layoffs of about 400 Jackson workers. SEIU complains that Jackson's governing body, the Public Health Trust, is violating its own standards for patient safety by laying off physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other healthcare professionals.
