U.S. Supreme Court Rebuffs Nursing Home Company Over NLRB Recess Appointments
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 recent decision to strike down three of President Barack Obama's appointees to the National Labor Relations Board calls the board's decisions into question.
In December, a federal judge approved an injunction requested by the board ordering the Parsippany, N.J.-based company to reinstate 600 striking workers at five nursing homes. A federal appeals court 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.
HealthBridge said Monday it would renew its application for a stay and direct it at Justice Antonin Scalia.
