AFSCME to Picket Hurley Medical Center, Flint
Date:1/28/2008

FLINT, Mich., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Lawrence A. Roehrig, Secretary-Treasurer of Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO, issued the following statement regarding informational picketing by AFSCME Local 1603 at Hurley Medical Center, Flint, from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM on January 28-30, 2008:

"AFSCME Local 1603 has been at the bargaining table with Hurley Medical Center since July 2007," stated Roehrig. "Hurley has demanded a dramatic two-tier system for new hires and significant concessions in medical coverage.

"Hurley has agreed to wage increases with 'me, too' clauses for four other bargaining units, guaranteeing that the medical insurance concessions will be shared," continued Roehrig. "However, the 'me, too' clause does not apply equally to all bargaining units, because Local 1603 wages are below the other bargaining units. The other units consist of Public Safety Officers, Licensed Practical Nurses, supervisors, and Radiology Technicians. The concessions will hit this Local the hardest.

"Hurley is bargaining from a fixed position. This is not the way collective bargaining works. AFSCME filed charges of unfair labor practice against Hurley on January 23, 2008," concluded Roehrig. "We have begun informational picketing at Hurley Medical Center to alert the public to Hurley management's abuse of these workers and their rights."

AFSCME Local 1603 represents 900 Hurley Medical Center workers. AFSCME Locals 814, 825, 1973 and 2056 represent an additional 260 Hurley Medical Center workers. Michigan AFSCME Council 25 represents more than 90,000 public workers across Michigan. AFSCME International represents 1.4 million public workers nationwide.
