Last Friday, John Rivera, president of the Dade County PBA, sent a tersely worded letter to Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Gimenez, ordering him to "cease and desist from any further direct dealing with our membership on any issue."
The PBA and the Government Supervisors Association of Florida have scheduled a contract ratification vote on the 5% employee contribution for health care for Thursday, Jan. 12.
The Miami Herald reported "Gimenez said Friday he plans to veto the county commission’s decisions Thursday not to impose labor concessions on county unions, but added he will still move ahead and send out the first wave of pink slips to county employees on Friday Jan. 13."
