Strike Update Day 63 – (4/22/2008)

Day 63 – The day started out with some workers doing construction on the nursing home, of course I had to investigate to see if they had proper buildings permits and it seems that all permits are in order. We will monitor the construction to make sure it does not extend beyond the scope of the issued permits.

While I was looking for the buildings permit that is supposed to be posted I stumbled upon another incident of someone inside the nursing home throwing eggs, this time the eggs were thrown at a union members car. You can see in the pictures below that the eggs were thrown at the side and the roof of the vehicle which infers that they came from an upper floor in the nursing home.

The security guards are still hanging around the residential side of the street, even in front of the house the union currently is renting. I am not sure why they are not stationed in the front of the nursing home where they should be.

We (FIPNA) are working on new legislature that we hope will prevent this kind of event from ever happening again. Please have a look at the Proposal for Discussion: the Board of Visitors.

 

Also the meeting that was supposed to take place today was once again postponed due to Helen Sieger being unavailable to attend. You can see a copy of the letter here from the New York State Employment Relations Board. How many postponements will be allowed? These meetings are not just for a group of people to meet, these meetings are to discuss and hopefully negotiate a contract for the 220 members standing outside on the picket line. The next meeting is set for April 29, 2008, let’s see if everyone attends. If this meeting does not happen then I would think something needs to be done to compel both parties to attend this meeting and get negotiations started.

 

Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

  1. you see me every day

    Thats not so bat i seen cars in the parking lot with more eggs on their cars,Did she get a ticket for parking on the yellow line?

  2. John Q. Neighbor

    Actually a yellow line means nothing to parking enforcement. I am surprised that you didn’t have the car towed like you did just recently to my friends car that was towed from the exact same spot after 10PM. You guys take all the parking make all this noise and do whatever you want in this neighborhood but if someone parks over your precious driveway oh my! Get a grip man and find some real work to do.I am sure you are supposed to be doing something besides throwing eggs.

    NOT ONLY ARE THESE SCABS MISUSING TIME AND MONEY BUT ARE THEY MISAPPROPRIATING THE EGGS FROM THE NURSING HOME KITCHEN???????HOW DO THEY FIND THE TIME TO BE THROWING WATER GLOVES AND EGGS WHEN THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE CARING FOR PATIENTS.???? AND ISN’T IT A VIOLATION TO OPEN THE WINDOWS???WHATS UP WITH THESE PEOPLE?????WHY AREN’T THEY BUSY MOPPING THE FILTHY,STICKY FLOORS OR INTERACTING WITH THE PATIENTS IN THE DAY ROOM?????????INSTEAD THEY’RE SO INTENT ON HITTING THE STRIKERS WITH EGGS AND GLOVES FILLED WITH WATER…..SHAME ON YOU…..YOU SHOULD REMEMBER ONE VERY IMPORTANT FACT……WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND…..

    Man oh man.you see me every day- a perfect example of what is taking care of the people inside.you don’t even make any sense . before you decide to go on a computer you should learn how to spell and write. and they say the people on strike are the dumb ones.give me a break.

  5. KINGSBRIDGE RESIDENT

    Maybe those security guards don’t want to be on the other side of the street.Why don’t the police tell them to go on their side of the street? Maybe Vanputten can tell them where to go.

  6. FIPNA MEMBER 1

    SIEGER IS TOO BUSY HIDING IN HER OFFICE TO GO TO ANY MEETING.SHE THINKS SHE’S ABOVE THE LAW.IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT SHE;S BLAMING THE UNION,THAT THEY WON’T AGREE TO HER CHOICE OF ARBITRATOR,WHICH IS HOGWASH.THE UNION HAS BEEN REPRESENTED AT EVERY MEETING THAT’S BEEN SET UP. SHE’S THE ONE THAT DOESN’T SHOW UP.SHE’S BEEN GIVEN A LIST OF 100 ARBITRATORS AND SHE DOESN’T LIKE ANY OF THEM.GIVE ME A BREAK.HELEN, GET UP OFF YOUR BUTT AND GO TO A MEETING ALREADY. IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO PUT AN END TO THIS INSANITY.

    Enough is enough already with this strike. Why doesn’t some agency just take Helens license away and then sort out everything else after? She is not negotiating in good faith and hasn’t even tried. Why isn’t the union bringing her to court? They had a contract before with her. They should be hauling her in to court.

    What is going on in this nursing home? The workers are out on strike and they’re starting construction work? What’ up with this? Why are people crossing a picket line?Why are they doing construction on the outside, when the place is falling apart on the inside? It’s miserable in there.Those poor people are being taken care of? by a bunch of scabs.And what’s up with this woman that worked there,dying? Has anybody found out the whole story? when is someone going to give up some answers?We have rights too and we need to know what’s going on.

  9. FIPNA MEMBER since 1980

    I’m not going anywhere near that place until we know what happened to that woman. People don’t just die like that.The State Department Of Health needs to go in there and make a full investigation. This could have serious ramifications on an entire community. We need to know.

  10. Phil

    Just to let everyone know we are waiting for more details about the worker who died, when we have more information we will pass it on to you. I would assume that if the woman passed away in a hospital and she had any type of communicable disease we would have all known about it already.

     

  11. FIPNA MEMBER since 1980

    Hey Philip don’t you know that you can’tassume, anything?Do you think anyone is going to run around broadcasting this? That’s why this community website is so important. Thanks for keeping us informed.
