174 disabled and elderly clients who depend on Monmouth County New Jersey’s SCAT program to get medical attention like dialysis treatments were stranded last Friday when the CWA union thugs who staff the program coordinated a sick-out to attend a rally against the taxpayers.
The CWA doesn’t even have any contract negotiations pending in New Jersey.
Republican State Sen. Joe Kyrillos wants the non-working workers fired. Good luck with that. There’s a reason they’re comfortable stranding old people who need medical treatment.
Just remember, liberals are all about the little guy and doing things for their fellow man. We’re all in this together.
“It is outrageous that 174 disabled and elderly clients who depend on SCAT were stranded by what appears to be a coordinated effort by employees to disrupt service without notice,” said Kyrillos. “The actions of these workers is completely unbecoming of any public servant, and should make every taxpayer in Monmouth County furious. CWA, the union representing these employees, needs to denounce their members for putting the well-being of these vulnerable individuals at risk, and the employees in question should be fired.”
Kyrillos said 17 SCAT workers, including 14 bus drivers for the developmentally disabled and senior citizens, took sick leave with no notice on Friday, Feb. 25 – “the same day as a coordinated demonstration organized by labor leaders at the State Capitol.” Service was disrupted for 174 clients who take SCAT buses to medical appointments or work.
