About 40 Civil Service Employees Association Local 830 members and supporters rallied outside Monday, according to Newsday.
The Newsday report states:
Union leaders charged that management of the public hospital based in East Meadow is trying create a partnership with the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, a private entity headquartered in Manhasset that union officials say already controls half of the hospitals in Nassau.
Union President Jerry Laricchiuta told Newsday, “North Shore is a great hospital, but it’s private and not public. NUMC is the people’s hospital, but it’s rife with political patronage. There have been 300 layoffs while rewarding already highly paid management."
A spokesperson for NUMC declined to comment on the charges.
