Carlyle-ManorCare Facing New Federal Charges for Breaking the Law: Interrogating, Threatening, Retaliating Against Nursing Home Workers for Trying to Form a Union
Date:8/27/2008

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Labor Relations Board issued new charges against Carlyle-ManorCare in Easton, Penn. yesterday. Workers from the Easton facility had filed a series of charges with the NLRB against ManorCare for interrogating, threatening, retaliating against workers, and attempting to bribe workers to stifle union activity. "ManorCare doesn't want to make real improvements. They're trying to buy us off by offering money or benefits to people so that we will back down. But what we really need is a voice to stand up for ourselves and our residents. What we want is to join together and form our union," said Karen Delabar, a Certified Nurse Assistant.

Like other Carlyle-ManorCare workers nationwide, caregivers in Easton have been struggling to form a union for more than a year.

This isn't the first time that workers have filed Federal charges against Carlyle-ManorCare. Other charges have been filed against the Easton facility, and workers at HCR Manor Care-Bethlehem filed a Federal charge with the Labor Board last week for three separate incidents of illegally threatening and interrogating workers about union activity. The Board has not yet issued a complaint on that charge.

The NLRB decided to combine the complaint yesterday with existing charges against ManorCare-Easton. Previous charges include that ManorCare interrogated employees, confiscated union literature, and retaliated against a worker for pro-union activity. Now, the Labor Board has added additional charges to the complaint accusing Manor Care of interrogating and threatening employees and granting employees benefits to attempt to stifle the workers attempts to form a union. The combined complaint will be heard Sept. 10 and 11.

Carlyle-ManorCare workers and SEIU Healthcare members are calling on ManorCare to give workers a free and fair choice about whether or not to join a union, and stop its campaign of harassment and intimidation against workers.
