LANSING, Mich., July 6, 2022 — Today, state Rep. Padma Kuppa (D-Troy) issued the following statement regarding the SKLD Bloomfield Hills nursing home workers strike:

“As co-chair of the Michigan Legislative Care Caucus, I stand with the nursing home workers of SKLD Bloomfield Hills as they demand better working conditions, safe staffing for quality care and an end to union-busting and other unfair labor practices. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown just how essential our frontline nursing home workers are to the whole community. They’ve risked their lives to care for our elderly and disabled communities, and they deserve safe working conditions and fair compensation for their labor.”
