On Thursday, August 3rd, members at Spruce Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Berks County held a “Respect”-themed sticker day and march on the boss. They organized the march to demand:
- Respect for the contract and our members;
- An answer to all outstanding grievances;
- Respect for their union; and
- Reinstatement for two union delegates that had been previously terminated.
Workers at Spruce Manor felt the new administrator and the director of nursing had not been following every aspect of the contract and the grievance process and were determined to send a message that they would stand together until they are treated with the respect they deserve.
We’re proud to stand with Spruce Manor workers as they fight for their rights and their residents.
