Nursing Home Workers Strike Over Employer Misconduct
Date:2/19/2008

Owners Accused of Violating Federal Law, Jeopardizing Resident Care

MILLBRAE, Calif., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Healthcare workers at Emmanuel Convalescent Hospital in Millbrae will hold a 24-hour strike on Friday over several violations of federal labor law, which have included firing pro-union workers without just cause, and slashing employees' benefits and paid time off.

Workers at the facility are concerned these cuts could threaten resident care at the 140-bed nursing home. It was recently purchased by the troubled A&C Health Care Services, which has a record of poor resident care at other facilities it operates. For example, at A&C's Camden Convalescent Hospital in Campbell, over the last two years, inspectors have found widespread problems with fire safety and pharmacy services.

WHAT:

24-hour Unfair Labor Practices strike

WHO:

Caregivers represented by SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West Gina Papan, Mayor of Millbrae

Frank Church, San Mateo County Supervisor

Jerry Hill, San Mateo County Supervisor

Linda Gregory, President, San Mateo Labor Council

Shelley Kessler, Executive Secretary, San Mateo Labor Council

Bill Nack, Executive Officer, Building and Construction Trades Council

WHEN:

Friday, February 22, 2 p.m.

(Note: Strike begins at 6 a.m.; rally to be held at 2 p.m.)

WHERE:

Emmanuel Convalescent Hospital

33 Mateo Ave.
