UMC Workers Take Pay Cut
(Las Vegas, NV) – Thousands of University Medical Center employees will see smaller paychecks. The “Review-Journal” says 3600 workers at the county-run hospital will take a 2% pay cut, thanks to a labor mediator’s decision. The cuts are retroactive to early May, and will continue until a new labor agreement is approved. They will save UMC more than$5-million a year. Officials plan to deduct the money from paychecks over the next few months. Because it treats poor and uninsured patients, UMC ran a deficit of $70-million last year.
