Strike Update Day 86 – (5/15/2008)

Day 86 – There were two articles in different papers that I found referencing the strike here at Kingsbridge, both are a good read.

 

Striking Bronx nursing home workers put up a fight – Crain’s New York

 

Kingsbridge Heights Nursing Home – Socialist Worker

 

It was nice to see the community affairs officers checking up on the situation and straightening the barriers.

It was reported to me that this afternoon there was an incident between a scab worker and a striking worker. The report said that the scab worker invited the striking worker to follow them and then pulled a knife on the striking worker. There were witnesses to this and the police officer on scene attended to the situation but nothing was done. The scab was not searched nor arrested, why? If all involved had to be detained then that is what should have been done, but to do nothing except send everyone on their way is not acceptable. We will be following up with the Captain to see what the story was and why nobody was detained.

 

Someone took it upon themselves to add to the life size cutout of Helen, they added the words “Helen Murderer” to the front of her shirt. I assume it is meant to reference the untimely death of Audrey and the fact that she had no benefits.

Also today, Helen was seen leaving in a taxi by several members that gathered around the taxi and chanted Murderer, this kept the taxi from leaving until the members were escorted away by the police officer on duty. What happened to Helen’s many hired security guards, why didn’t they intervene?

 

Tonight I noticed more flowers and candles were placed on the strike line in memory of Audrey, we are still waiting to find out information on where Audrey’s funeral will take place. We will post the information here as soon as it becomes available to us.

 

Till Tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

    Eureka– I’ve Finally figured it out– The case is solved– You know how I used to stymie Inspector Jacques Clouseau– But all the clues and my great detecting skills have finally paid off– The real reason there are so many lights, so many cameras and so many hired security guards is—

    (— wait for it —)

    because they are protecting Helen’s many, many bags of gold. What once was known as “FORT INDEPENDENCE” has been turned into Sieger’s very own “FORT KNOX”. She has been bunkered down for 85 days in her “FORT KNOX” guarding all her many envelopes filled with CASH!! She has been sitting, eating, drinking and sleeping atop the massive wealth she has acquired, in fear that it will all be taken away from her!!! CASE CLOSED!!! ADIEU, Until we meet again—

    Mais bien sûr, Pink Panther! Vous avez raison! Bonne enquête compétences!

    HERE WE GO AGAIN…..CAPTAIN D’ADAMO THIS IS YOUR WEEKLY REMINDER…..WE EXPECT YOUR OFFICERS TO FOLLOW THE LETTER OF THE LAW…..WHY DIDN’T THE OFFICER ON DUTY, CALL FOR A FEMALE OFFICER TO COME TO THE SCENE????? THERE WERE SEVERAL, INDEPENDENT WITNESSES TO THE INCIDENT, THAT ADVISED HIM THAT THE SCAB BRANDISHED A KNIFE AT THE STRIKER, WHY WAS NOTHING DONE?????????? IS IT OR IS IT NOT PROPER POLICE PROCEDURE TO CALL FOR BACKUP IN SUCH AN INSTANCE???????? WE ARE GETTING VERY TIRED OF HAVING TO TAKE THE NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT 50 PRECINCT TO TASK FOR NOT FOLLOWING PROPER POLICE PROCEDURE…….IT WOULD BE IN EVERYONE’S BEST INTERESTS IF YOU ADVISE THE OFFICERS POSTED AT THE STRIKE SITE TO FOLLOW PROPER POLICE PROCEDURE……..THAT WOMAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN SEARCHED AND THEN ARRESTED…..THIS IS NOT A LAUGHING MATTER…..LIVES ARE AT STAKE HERE ………………………IT WAS ALSO NICE TO SEE COMMUNITY AFFAIRS OFFICER RODRIQUEZ HARD AT WORK, HOLDING UP THE BARRICADES……

    “Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.”

    Hey sieger, love your Prada shoes,just think that lady might still be alive if she had the money you paid for those shoes.

    Man oh man that is one ugly broad $$$$$ aint everything cant by u luv

  8. FIPNA MEMBER since 1980

    It was quite shocking and distressing for me to read that one of those replacement workers tried to attack a striking member with a knife. It is very disconcerting that there were several witnesses present, that saw the whole thing, yet the police officer did nothing. What is going on here? Why are the police not doing their jobs? Who will be held accountable for this fiasco? Is this what we have to look forward to in the days ahead? This is not acceptable conduct. The police better get a grasp on this situation before it gets totally out of hand. We as a community do not have to put up with this kind of extreme behavior being brought into our neighborhood. This nursing home,with their inadequate administration, is fast becoming a thorn in our side. Maybe it’s time for someone to cut the prickly bush down to size.

    * “A CNA who has lost her voice, an activity worker who thinks he’s the Pope and a witness to a murder. Oh yes, it’s obvious to my trained eye, that there is much more going on here, than meets the ear.”to be continued-

  10. Jacques Clouseau

    But oh wise one, the Pink Panther: why would one need so much money as to purposely harm others. Why harm those who helped make the money? Why harm them by not giving them the pay/benefits they earn for the hard work they do? Don’t they know that cutting off health care benefits is like cutting the workers pay in half? If they have so much, why they need more?

    FOR ‘THE IDIOTS’ (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE):

    I didn’t think it was humanly possible for your stupidity to sink to lower depths than it already had. I guess I was wrong.

     

    You make light of the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to fill Sieger’s pockets. You feign respect for our Sister, Adurey – then mock the people who truly love her. Sieger has a legal obligation to continue every single article of the expired contract until a new contract is signed – except the arbitration provision. This means that her refusal to provide the life saving health benefits, at the very least, makes her culpably negligent in regard to her death. You mock our Caribbean Brothers and Sisters as ‘ignorant’ for their Patois, yet are outraged at their response to your religious culture (and for the record, many of us feel that the only people *NOT* involved in this strike that walks into that concentration camp that Sieger has bunkered down in are the families and residents. EVERYONE else morally shares in her blame).

     

    You then whine about ‘shit’ being smeared on your cars. I would think that your cameras would have caught the culprit, assuming it was true.

     

    Let me let you in on a little ‘secret’ – those 5,000 1199 supporters who marched on May 3rd, every F.I.P.N.A. member in the area – every single elected Bronx official – Not to mention her own family that is trying to evict her from THEIR property – are tired of her thieving, immoral actions. It’s just a matter of time before Sieger is walked out of there in handcuffs, and all the assets of the home frozen. Let’s see where your humor is when ‘Sieger’s millions’ are no longer available to pay you filthy SCABS.

     

    As if everything else isn’t enough – here’s some light reading about Sieger BRIBING attorneys in her divorce case:

    Have a pleasant day.

    FOR PINK PANTHER & JACQUES CLOUSEAU:

    Permettez-nous de voir si vous pouvez trouver le mispelling dans le susdit préavis, O le grand Inspecteur!

  14. Jacques Clouseau

    Patrick, puis les directions, merci pour le beau poste.

  15. Money Man (Patrick)

    FOR FORMER FIPNA & FIPNA 1980:

    You shouldn’t really be surprised. Like any parasite, Sieger will not be happy until the host is completely consumed. Then she’ll find a new host to infect, and move on. IMNSHO…it’s time for some antibiotics.

    First Sieger moved in, bought a house she let degrade into a dump so she can lower home values, proudly steals tax dollars to line her pockets, hires crack-heads from the street to ‘care for’ our community, contributes to the death of a valued caregiver, and has her SCABS brag about it publically…and now theft in the neighborhood. After all, everyone that is currently in the FIPNA neighborhood has been there for years – except the SCABS.

    “Poor” Miss Sieger – She just don’t get why EVERYONE is against her! :/

    Patrick,

    The Pink Panther strikes again, j’ai trouvé votre orthographe – Audrey.
    Affaire privée.

    Vous êtes les bienvenus!

    Vous n’êtes pas aussi stupide que vous regardez.

    Patrick,
    You give Martin way too much credit, he cannot type proper English let alone type French. I am pretty sure it is not Martin that is posing as the Pink Panther as it would take some creativity to think of such a name. We all know the usual names Martin uses… mr. scab, nakiba, etc… Not very creative at all.

    If you read what the Pink guy has written it would appear that he has might have a real clue as to what is going on around here.

  19. Pink Panther

    Mon Dieu, ce n’est pas une question de rire ou une blague en quelque manière que ce soit. J’espère être là et applaudir comme ils prennent Sieger dans les menottes et les aidera à perdre la clé. La “maison de Sieger” sera bientôt tomber.

     

    For those that do not understand French:

     

    My God, this is not a matter of laugh or a joke in any way whatsoever. I hope to be there and applaud as they take Sieger in handcuffs and help them lose the key. The “house Sieger” will soon fall.

  20. FORMER FIPNA PRESIDENT

    PATRICK…WHAT A GREAT POST…I REALLY THINK YOU’VE SUMMED IT ALL UP IN PLAIN OLD ENGLISH FOR EVERYONE TO UNDERSTAND………. THIS WHOLE DEBACLE HAS BEEN A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE FROM DAY ONE AND WE ARE NOW AT DAY EIGHTY-SIX,ALL BECAUSE OF ONE PERSON’S GREED………HOW CAN SHE SLEEP AT NIGHT??????
