The 4C’s provided funds to purchase dozens of Thanksgiving turkeys to help make the holidays a little brighter for striking sisters and brothers in SEIU District 1199.
Since July, nearly six hundred Connecticut nurses, aides, and support staff have been on strike. Their employer, HealthBridge, illegally imposed a new contract without workers’ agreement. The company deeply cut compensation, benefits, and working conditions.
4C’s President Steve Cohen joined the Milford picket line before Thanksgiving. “I remember when my father-in-law was a resident at this nursing home and what good care you gave him. I thank you for that,” Steve told West River Health Care workers. “Our union stands with you in your struggle for justice and a fair contract.”
