HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The National Labor Relations Board has issued a federal complaint against the New Jersey-based nursing home company that owns five Connecticut facilities where workers are striking, including in Danbury.
The report, released yesterday, found that HealthBridge/Care One ``failed and refused to bargain in good faith with the union'' and made changes to wages, hours and other conditions without negotiations with the union.
The N-L-B's acting general counsel is seeking an order that requires the company to reimburse the employees lost wages and benefits. A hearing is scheduled for September 10th at the state capital.
A HealthBridge spokeswoman previously said the company has not been found guilty of any violations.
About 700 staff walked off the job on Tuesday at homes in Danbury, Milford, Newington, Stamford and Westport.
