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.
