As the story continues to unfold, employees of Saint Catherine Medical Center are becoming frustrated with the lack of information about the future of the facility, according to an article on the RepublicanHerald.com.
Yesterday the hospital filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11. Today the facility’s owner, Robert M. Lane, held a meeting with employees, but many walked away without much information. After the meeting, representatives from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees were on hand to help Saint Catherine workers fill out paperwork.
In the article, some employees mentioned a number of problems at the facility, including deductions like union dues being taken from employee paychecks but not forwarded to the union, not receiving paychecks on time, and ongoing shortage of supplies at the hospital.
It’s difficult to read the stories coming from the situation with Saint Catherine Medical Center, a local hospital with a long history of helping injured miners, railroad workers, and textile workers. But we also know the financial struggles facing individuals and families in this time of economic uncertainty. If you were an employee of Saint Catherine Medical Center and you were injured on the job or have otherwise been a victim of unfair employment practices, you deserve compensation.
