Jackson Health System employees should see a 2 percent bonus in their paychecks in about two weeks after Miami-Dade commissioners on Tuesday approved a series of contracts with labor unions representing workers at the county's public hospital network. In total, the pay bonus, called a "gain-sharing" payment because Jackson CEO Carlos Migoya promised employees a "share" of any profit or budget surplus in 2013, will amount to about $10.8 million, or 1.67 percent of payroll for the year that ended Sept. 30. Miami-Dade commissioners approved the contracts without discussion by a 12-1 margin, with Commissioner Juan C. Zapata. casting the sole dissenting vote.
