Justice Ginsburg Rules In Connecticut Labor Case

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has denied a request by a New Jersey nursing home company which asked her to allow it to delay reinstating striking Connecticut workers.

HealthBridge Management argued Monday that a federal court’s Jan. 25 decision to strike down three of President Barack Obama appointees to the National Labor Relations Board calls into question the labor board’s decisions.

In December, a federal judge in Hartford approved an injunction requested by the labor board ordering the Parsippany, N.J.-based company to reinstate 600 striking workers at five nursing homes. A federal appeals court in New York last week rejected HealthBridge’s request to delay that order.

District 1199 of the New England Health Care Employees Union said it’s pleased with Ginsburg’s decision.

An email seeking comment was sent to a HealthBridge spokesman.
