Striking health care workers will return to jobs March 3

Eight months after nurses, aides and support staff at five HealthBridge-operated nursing homes in Connecticut went on strike, the workers will return to their jobs on Sunday, March 3.

The strike included workers at West River Health Care Center in Milford.

The caregivers will return to their jobs under the same terms and conditions of their prior Collective Bargaining Agreement and resume contract negotiations with HealthBridge until a final decision is reached in the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) case against the company, union officials said Wednesday.

“I am so excited to get back to the job-and the patients-I love,” said Sophia Forbes, a certified nursing assistant at the Newington Health Care Center.  “Again and again, HealthBridge tried to delay justice for me and my coworkers, but we stood strong for fairness at work and for quality care for our patients.”
