That Union Thing

Van drivers for Metro Mobility Management have staged a rally to protest low pay, long workdays, and impossible scheduling.

Workers object to 12-hour workdays and scheduling that makes them choose between breaking traffic laws or missing pickup deadlines. since August, Metro Mobility has been the sole paratransit provider for Palm Tran.

The Jackson Health System has reached an agreement with unions SEIU and AFSCME. At issue were outsourcing plans. Under the agreements, ER employees will remain Jackson employees if their departments are outsourced, and Jackson has abandoned plans to outsource the Central Business Office. Changes to scheduling will also bring some part-time employees to full-time status.
