Cedar Haven Strike Rally
The sisters and brothers of AFSCME Local 2732 are holding a rally tomorrow, Friday, October 27, starting at 11:30 a.m., to mark one week since the nurses and staff of Cedar Haven Healthcare Center went on strike.
A press conference will take place at noon from the stage of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO’s RV, and speakers will include: Elissa McBride (Secretary-Treasurer of AFSCME International), Penny Kleinfelter (President of AFSCME Local 2732), Sarah Allwein (companion of Cedar Haven resident and former nurse), Kat Steffy (Cedar Haven resident), Frank Snyder (Secretary-Treasurer of Pennsylvania AFL-CIO) and Steve Mullen (Director of AFSCME District Council 89).
This rally is taking place to show the owner of the nursing home that the members of Local 2732 will never quit until they get a fair contract, and to raise public awareness about the dwindling quality of care from temporary staff inside the nursing home.
Sisters and brothers of labor and the general public are encouraged to come out and show their support.
