Jackson Board Votes to Continue Privatization Plans Despite Outraged Community

Thanks to all of you who showed your support for Jackson’s ER today at the Financial Recovery Board meeting. It was a standing-room only crowd and the huge turnout of more than 200 people showed just how much this community cares about Jackson’s ER and preserving our hospital’s mission of providing one single standard of care to everyone in the community. Please read The Miami Herald article below to find what happened at today’s important meeting.

While the FRB voted to continue to explore outsourcing options, our fight does not end here! Today was just the beginning of a community uprising to defend OUR Jackson and to stop any attempts to sell off our public jewel. Please stay engaged and keep standing with us as we continue our fight to save Jackson!

In Unity,

President Martha Baker, RN
SEIU Local 1991
