Gov. Dannel Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman joined the 1199 Union picked line at the Newington Health Care Center in Newington Ct. managed by HealthBridge. HealthBridge is a huge national organization based in New Jersey.
Around the state, nearly 700 workers are on strike, in Newington,
Workers at five HealthBridge-owned nursing homes went on strike last week after the health care company declined to return to the bargaining table. Malloy said it's clear the company has taken "unfair actions" against employees, citing last week's federal complaint against the company issued by the National Labor Relations Board.
In a statement issued this morning, Malloy chided HealthBridge for its actions. "This comes at a time when many other nursing homes in
have agreed to reasonable contracts over the last year," the statement read. "HealthBridge is the exception and not in a good way. These types of tactics are unacceptable. They negatively impact the lives of the residents who live in these nursing homes and the residents' families because the continuum of care gets interrupted." Connecticut
