U.S. Supreme Court Denies Request to Delay Reinstating West River Employees

A HealthBridge executive says the company is disappointed at the decision, but will comply with the lower court order.

 

The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a request by a nursing home company that asked for delay reinstating striking Connecticut workers.

The court responded Wednesday to HealthBridge Management, which argued that a federal court’s recent decision to strike down three of President Barack Obama’s appointees to the National Labor Relations Board calls the board’s decisions into question.

In December, a federal judge approved an injunction requested by the board ordering the Parsippany, N.J.-based company to reinstate 600 striking workers at five nursing homes. A federal appeals court rejected HealthBridge’s request for a delay.

District 1199 of the New England Health Care Employees Union said it’s past time its members were back at work.

A HealthBridge executive says the company is disappointed at the decision, but will comply with the lower court order.

It's very interesting that the U.S. Supreme Court is weighing in on an issue about a business in Milford. What do you think of their decision?

Once a month the Milford Lions club holds its Board of Directors meeting there. I, personally am happy to see this dispute settled. Management has run their legal claims to the summit and now must comply with the decision. It is the patients who will reap the benefits.
