NJ Frontline addiction treatment workers to begin Unfair Labor Practice strike on May 24 with a kick-off rally

After nine months of bargaining a first contract, 120 nurses and addiction treatment workers at Sunrise House, affiliated with American Addiction Center, Inc. (AAC) set to begin a three-day Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) strike, will hold a kick-off rally on May 24. The treatment center is located in Lafayette, New Jersey. The workers, represented by HPAE, have been struggling to reach a fair contract following the union election victory last June.

What:  HPAE ULP Strike Kick-Off Rally

Date: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

Where:  Sunset House, 37 Sunset Inn Road, Lafayette, NJ

AAC is under investigation by the National Labor Relations Board for failing to bargain in good faith, making unilateral changes, discriminating against a union activist, and for failing to provide necessary information.

AAC is also under investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for complaints of unsafe conditions at Sunrise House.

Key issues are staff shortages, wages and safety conditions for both the staff and patients.
