Strike Update Day 174 – (8/11/2008)

Day 174 – This post is a wrap up from all of last weeks happenings. There has been so much press about Helen Sieger getting arrested:

 

Nursing home boss hit with charge – Daily News
Kingsbridge Heights nursing home owner arrested – Riverdale Press
ATTORNEY GENERAL CUOMO ANNOUNCES ARREST OF NURSING HOME CEO

 

There was also this great article that appeared in the Socialist Worker:

 

Kingsbridge strikers hang tough – Socialist Worker

 

So here we stand on Monday waiting to see what tomorrow will bring, hopefully it will bring an end to this strike! The NLRB hearing tomorrow should take into consideration all that has been going on for the past 6 months and hopefully issue the injunction to get these striking members back to work.

 

Tomorrow has a lot of things happening, perhaps it will really be the ‘D’-day that the sign one of the strikers had put up states! Of course we know the date has been changed to the 12th.

 

 

On Friday, we saw Helen running into the building as not to be seen by the members.

 


Also on Friday you can see the members all celebrating the fact that Helen was finally handed some justice, you can see the members praying and then chanting. Funny I remember Martin(mr. scab) saying that he has never witnessed a member read a book, hmmmm, look here:

 


You can see Isaac, Curtis, Mavis and others all speaking about the happenings of the day before.

 

 

 

 

Here is a quick video of them chanting “Helen you must go to jail now, you must!”

 

 

Finally, I saw a maintenance worker adding what appears to be some type of vents above the kitchen doors. Take a look at the picture, he is cutting brick with the doors to the kitchen open! All the brick dust is blowing right into the food preparation area, real smart no?

 

 

Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

    Mes amis, ce n’est qu’un début, le Daily News a dit so.This enquête par le procureur général Cuomo est de trois volets. Maintenant, alias Patrick Money Man be nice! Cette arrestation est seulement la première d’une longue liste de frais encore à venir. Il est temps de se rassembler dans la prière, et prier avec une ferveur jamais comme avant, de sorte que le bon Dieu écoute nos prières et de la justice sera servi. Nous savons que le pouvoir de la prière peut accomplir des miracles. Comme nous le savons tous “bonne conquiert toujours mal” et Hellen est une femme vraiment mal. Maintenant nous allons tous voir comment elle sera la mendicité pour proclamer la miséricorde et de son innocence. Si elle est innocente, je suis Blanche-Neige, mais non, je suis The Pink Panther et je ne suis jamais, jamais démentie

    My Friends, this is only the beginning, the Daily News said so.This investigation by Attorney General Cuomo is three pronged. Now Patrick aka Money Man be nice! This arrest is only the first in a long list of charges yet to come. It is time to gather in prayer, and pray with a fervor like never before, so that the Good Lord hears our prayers and justice will be served. We know that the power of prayer can work miracles. As we all know “good always conquers evil’ and HELLen is a truly evil woman. Now we will all see how she will be begging for mercy and proclaiming her innocence. If she is innocent, I am Snow White, but no, I am the Pink Panther and I am never, ever proved wrong.

    Mira muchachos..did anybody call the Buildings Department or the Board of Health? They have got to be kidding, cutting through brick with the doors open, and the entire kitchen and food preparation area becoming contaminated. What’s up with this broad, does she sit on her brains? Or am I giving her too much credit by even thinking she had any brains?

  3. Former Employee

    Man that aint nothin, they be doin crap like that all the time.They don’t care about nobody and nothin.

  4. little bill

    so i gues i cant go to work tommorow, since you coming back in,,

  5. Mavis foreman

    itty bitty bill …. use your head. you’re sure acting like the fool you are.

  6. Money Man (Patrick)

    FOR LITTLE BILL:

    No – the judge won’t give a return date for tomorrow. You’ll have a few more days. Of course, I wouldn’t actually expect HELLen to pay you for ANYTHING. You’d be better off getting a good lawyer and being prepared to sue her! ROFLMAO! You want to SCAB us…work for free!

    As FFP would say: Too bad, so sad…bye bye!

  7. Former Employee

    Yo man you can leave your sorry butt home-cause we be back soon- and you e gone—

  8. Mavis foreman

    he’s such an axx

  9. little bill

    OK i have one question,when you guys come back are you going to have a signed contract? Because that’s why you went on strike to get your benefits,because all the months on strike would be pointless you went on strike without a contract and come back in with out a contract

  10. Phil

    At least you are now asking some real questions, if the NLRB gets an injunction to allow the striking members to return to work then YES the existing contract has to be followed. I will leave all specifics to Patrick to explain if he so desires.

     

    Of course it is not as simple as everyone back to work and just pretend nothing happened. There is much more going on than many of us are aware of.

    IT IS ABOUT TIME… IT TOOK LONG ENOUGH…LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE SHE HAS PUT THRU **** FOR THE PAST 174 DAYS..I TRULY HOPE THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF A LONG LIST OF CHARGES AGAINST HELLen SIEGER.

NOW SHE WILL BEG AND PLEAD FOR MERCY LIKE THE P ITIFUL EXCUSE OF A WOMAN THAT SHE IS, PLEADING INNOCENCE….

  13. Rosa Martinez

    MIRA! OYE!..POCO HOMBRE – WHAT DO YOU CARE IF THERE IS A CONTRACT? YOU WILL BE HISTORY.. HASTA LA VISTA!

  14. little bill

    the reason i asked was because what would be the point of the strike if you coming back with no contract dumb ***…The reason you went on strike is to get a contract i would be pist if i was on strike for 175 days to fight for my contract and come back in with out a contract.

    Thank you Phil for posting the article from Socialist Worker… The folks who put out Socialist Worker are also doing an event on Thursday with 1199/SEIU about the health care crisis – a couple of strikers, Kervin Campbell (pictured above in your post) and Helen Duncan will be speaking.

    You don’t anyone to tell you the poor state of health care in the U.S. Maybe you’re one of the 47 million in this country without health insurance. Or the millions who have it but are denied proper treatment by the for-profit insurance companies whose only care is profit. Or maybe you know one of the estimated 100,000 people who died this year from not getting adequate care when they needed it.

     

    But there’s no need to take it lying down. Nationally, the spotlight on the sick state of the system has forced politicians to talk about reform plans. Locally, striking health care workers at the Kingsbridge Heights Rehabilitation Center in the Bronx — whose own coverage has been cut — are in their fifth month of an important fight which, if successful, could set just the kind of example we need.

    FOR LITTLE BILL:

    Like Phil said, and intelligent questions deserves an intelligent answer.

    1. The injunction will put workers back in to work, all scabs will be out, and HELLen will be required to a) pay for the benefits, and b) abide by the current contract, c) renegotiate. To not do these three things will leave her in contempt of court. Federal judges don’t play, as she recently found out.

    2. We will have our benefits back. The NLRB has recently issued an award (which you can verify on their website) that HELLen is responsible not only for making benefit fund contributions, but is responsible for all back bills incurred by members. This is separate from, and in addition to, any injunction.

    3. The AGs office is only one of MANY ongoing investigations that will shortly lead to even more arrests. HELLen is aware of this, none of it is secret. Each time those politicians came to our rallies and joined with thousands of 1199 members and community members, they all said the same thing: HELLen WILL go. Did you, HELLen and your cohorts think they were kidding? Did you and she actually think that the hundreds of strikers and community members were just there to get their faces in a newsflash?!? No my friend…they left ralleys, called Albany, and even more importantly – told their elected officials that HELLens particular kind of greed and abuse WOULD NOT BE TOLERATED ANY LONGER IN THEIR COMMUNITY. Politicans listen.

    I hope that answers your question. At this point, I wouldn’t even advise you and your cohorts to leave. Stay if you’d like – it will make it easier for investigators to find you, and possibly arrest you as well – for taking part is this fiasco of death and theft. After all, even the Administrator and DNS *THOUGHT* they were going to jump ship – until they were told THEY WEREN’T GOING ANYWHERE. LOL! I love it when people think they’re just going to walk away from the shit they cause, without ramifications.

    So Billie…she’s going DOWN DOWN DOWN AND ****SO ARE YOU!!****
