Teamsters, Religious Leaders Call on Ascension Health to Respect Rights of Workers, Patients and Communities
Date:3/12/2010

lus interest and $97,500 in attorney fees in a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice over claims of Medicare overcharging.
  • Teamsters Local Union 332 represents over 1,000 nurses and 300 technical employees at the Ascension-affiliated Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, MI. The technical employees are currently working under a contract extension until March 17, 2010.
  • The contract for 720 nurses represented by the Michigan Nurses Association at Ascension’s Borgess Health in Kalamazoo, MI expires on March 19, 2010.
  • Genesys wants to stop the current pension fund and instead wants employees to pay for their own retirement in a tax-deferred savings plan. They want to chop wages by two percent and eliminate the health care protections that have been promised to retired workers.
  • In a community already underserved, Genesys has eliminated 50 LPN positions and wants to demote 70 more, which would mean a wage cut for many of them. Genesys also wants to eliminate all paramedic and EMT positions and may sub-contract the emergency service work.
  • Genesys nurses and technical employees are represented by Teamsters Local Union 332, 1502 South Dort Hwy, Flint, MI 48503. Nina Bugbee, President. (810) 767-7330.
