Union Files Labor Board Charge Against Wanaque
Today, we filed an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charge against Wanaque for violating the National Labor Relations Act. Acting illegally, management suspended the President of our local union, Abdul Umoru, and threatened to discipline the Secretary-Treasurer of our local union, Laura Dymond, for engaging in protected, concerted activity.
Management retaliated against Abdul and Laura because they circulated a petition in support of adequate staffing and a decent contract for the CNAs. We have every legal right to do this and, as patient care advocates, we have a moral duty to stand up for adequate staffing.
