Miami Herald, February 16, 2010

The union for Miami-based Jackson Health System's nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals is warning members that it expects to be notified of widespread layoffs at a meeting on Feb. 16. "We expect to receive lists of affected areas and employees," Local 1991 of the Service Employees International Union said on its Web site. "It is important to remember that our union contract requires that we receive at least 21 days notice of layoffs, which means no one in our bargaining unit can be laid off before March 9." Facing a deficit of over $200 million this fiscal year, Jackson Chief Executive Eneida Roldan said she needs to cut 20%-25% of the budget, the Miami Herald reports.
