Strike Update Day 170 – (8/7/2008)

Day 170 – As you already know Helen Sieger has been arrested because she allegedly committed a felony by not providing workers’ compensation to her employees for over a year. You can see the official press release on the Attorney Generals’ website here: ATTORNEY GENERAL CUOMO ANNOUNCES ARREST OF NURSING HOME CEO

 

I must thank the Riverdale Press and Nick Judd for getting the news out so quickly after they were informed of the news, you can see their article here: Kingsbridge Heights nursing home owner arrested

 


“Helen, sitting in Rikers Island”

 

I was told that before all this happened that Jacob put his resignation in for August 4 and also a nursing director resigned as well. It is my understanding that both of them were told to report back to work by the AG while the investigation is still pending.

 

From sources close to the happenings, there is rumors that there are 4 total indictments that will be carried out. I don’t want to give specifics as the investigations are still pending.

 

I would be worried if I was anyone involved with wrong doing inside the nursing home. I am pretty sure that Helen will not take the fall for everyone and in the not too distant future we may even see more arrests.

 

We have been yelling about this for close to six months now and nobody would listen, it took all the power of 1199, our Elected Officials, FIPNA, COSA and many others to finally get this whole situation brought to light. I only hope that the Department of Health did their proper inspections and did not succumb to Helen’s greedy ways. According to records that we (FIPNA) acquired from the DOH under Freedom of Information, DOH claims that the nursing home has been and is currently in compliance across the board.

 

All the striking members as you can imagine are full of exuberance, most of the members were at a rally at Madison Square Garden supporting other union members but I am sure they will all be back strong tomorrow.

 

The last piece of this puzzle should fall into place on Monday when hopefully the NLRB issues the injunction to allow all the striking members to return to their jobs. I will keep you all posted on any new updates that happen, stay strong as this battle is not completely won!

 

In solidarity, STAND STRONG!

    The following description of a “Scab” was written many years ago by Jack London, the famous novelist. It still holds good today.

     

    “Portrait of A Scab”

     

    After God had finished the Rattlesnake, the Toad, and the Vampire, he had some awful substance left with which he made a Scab.

     

    A Scab is a two-legged animal with a corkscrew soul, a water logged brain and a combination backbone of jelly and glue. Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.

     

    When a scab comes down the street, men turn their backs, angels weep in Heaven and the Devil shuts the gates of Hell to keep him out.

     

    No man has a right to scab as long as there is a pool of water to drown his carcass in, or a rope long enough to hang his body with. Judas Iscariot was a gentleman compared with a scab. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A scab has not.

     

    Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Judas sold his savior for thirty pieces of silver. Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commission in the British Army. The modern strikebreaker sells his birthright, his country, his wife, his children, and his fellowmen for an unfulfilled promise from his employer, trust or corporation.

    London’s words couldn’t ring more true.

    With all the scabs that have come and gone – I think the most repulsive of all are those few who chose not to come out, and those management personnel that chose to remain in support of HELLen. Last night, as many of the strikers joined their Home Care Brothers and Sisters at a ralley in support of their contract struggle – I stayed on the line with those few members who couldn’t attend. As management and scabs came out, they were actually HAPPY HELLen was arrested! It appears they were too busy watching Bronx 12 then taking care of the residents. The comradarie they *thought* they would receive from us was extremely short lived.

    What kind of human sinks so low as to to KNOWINGLY take part in theft of taxpayer dollars, active harm to defenseless elderly residents, and betrayal of their peers – and then think that they have any right to rejoice when the oppressor is finally taken down?!? Those scabs that were working last night watched from the windows as the reporter from Channel 12 got out of her car, but as soon as the camera came out, those windows and curtains were closed so fast you’d think a cyclone was passing through! Even “security” was nowhere to be found!

    While the bureaucracy is slow to move, when it hits, it hits hard. I’m sure before the State is finished, it won’t just be HELLen or her administrative staff that find themselves in front of a judge.

    Thank you, Phil – and FIPNA, and COSA, and the entire Ft. Independence community for your continued support.

  8. Former Employee

    MAN–I STILL BE SMILING!!!!

  9. Phil

    Patrick said “HELLen was released on $150,000 bail” I hope that they received a cash bond! It was expected that Helen would be released until she has to return for trial, not only that she needs to clean out her office to make way for the new receiver!

  10. Money Man (Patrick)

    FOR MOTHER GOOSEY!

    ROFLMAO! We’re gonna have to pass the hat to buy smokes to bring HELLen in prison. Might be the only way to keep “Beulah” from making an “honest woman” out of HELLen! God knows, her husband couldn’t…or wouldn’t! Some holes are best left unexplored!

    Some people are just TOO NASTY!

    Sorry Phil, I couldn’t resist! :D

    Little Bill, I am not going to entertain your stupidity any longer, if you have nothing better to do than post non-sense just don’t post anything at all.

     

    Are you trying to say Helen wasn’t arrested? I guess the Attorney General is a liar then?

     

    As for the date change, I think you know a bit too much! I was going to post tonight about how once again Helen managed to get an extra day out of the court. You are correct! The new NLRB hearing date is now Tuesday August 12, 2008. It should be very interesting to see what Helen does then? You really should tell her to stop the non-sense already and quit stalling, the inevitable is coming an she is going to have to face it. 1199 WILL get their injunction and Helen will be forced to take all the workers back. Hopefully in short time Helen will be gone and the workers can work for a boss who has some type of dignity and compassion.

Hey little bill why don’t you shut your mouth already? It’s obvious that you have no brains, you must be related to that Martin/Mr. Scab guy!

    Mon Dieu, que s’est-il passé? Il est tellement calme je peux entendre pense moi-même. Qu’est-il arrivé à tous les croûtes grande bouche? Que s’est-il passé à Marty bébé? Que s’est-il passé à “cher doux soeur” Nadine? Ils ont toujours eu tellement de choses à dire. Où sont-ils passés? Je pense que “chère soeur doux» Nadine a vu enfin l’écriture sur le mur et slithered loin de travailler quelque part d’autre comme une gale. Marty et bébé, vous êtes si tranquille? Rien à dire? Cat got your tongue? ou peut-être Auntie Hellen vous l’a dit Shut Your Big Fat bouche que vous gardez votre mise à pied? N’est-il pas si merveilleux que nos prévisions ont commencé à se réaliser? Hellen arrêté, imaginer. Boy, elle doit avoir peed sa culotte quand elle les voyait venir pour elle! Comment se fait-il qu’elle est toujours à court de la cuisine? Nous devons être prêts, la prochaine fois et crier “elle est ici« fugue. Elle peut fonctionner, mais elle ne peut cacher, pas de procureur général Cuomo, il va faire un bon exemple de son! Elle est la première, et la première est toujours utilisée pour définir un exemple, afin que personne d’autre ne pensent qu’ils peuvent s’en tirer avec anything.Poor, Hellen pauvres, maintenant, elle va découvrir ce que c’est que derrière les barreaux. J’espère qu’elle est la “royale” de traitement. Elle mérite tout ce qui se passe avec elle et plus, pour ce qu’elle a fait pour tout le monde dans KHRCC.
    My God, what has happened? It is so quiet I can hear myself think. What has happened to all the big mouth scabs? What has happened to Marty baby? What has happened to ” dear sweet sister” Nadine? They always had so much to say. Where did they go? I think “dear sweet sister” Nadine finally saw the handwriting on the wall and slithered away to work somewhere else as a scab. And Marty baby, you are so quiet? Nothing to say? Cat got your tongue? or maybe Auntie HELLen told you to shut your big fat mouth that you keep putting your foot in? Isn’t it so wonderful that our predictions have started coming true? HELLen arrested, imagine that. Boy, she must have peed her pants when she saw them coming for her! How is it that she is always running out of the kitchen? We have got to be there waiting the next time and yell “here she is ” running away. She can run but she can’t hide, not from Attorney General Cuomo, he is going to make a good example of her! She is the first, and the first is always used to set an example,so that no one else will think they can get away with anything.Poor, poor HELLen, now she’s going to find out what it’s like behind bars. I hope she gets the “royal” treatment. She deserves everything that happens to her and more, for what she has done to everyone in KHRCC.
