Did you all know that Middlesboro ARH did not give their employees anything at all for Christmas? Most companies give at least a little something for a Christmas present but ARH did not give their employees anything at all. Not even a card! These people work hard everyday to take care of the sick and some of them are even their on the holidays and I think they deserve a little bit of appreciation from their employer. You would think a big company could afford to give them a little bit extra for the holidays. They say they don not make any money but that is crap. We all know how expensive it is to go to the hospital and have a test done. No wonder these people went on strike when they did. I have visited the hospital several times lately and they are very understaffed. Most of the workers are running around trying to do the work of two
or three people and anyone that is watching can see that.

I personally can't answer your question, but I would say that those working there are lucky to have a job with the ecomony as it is. Could it possibly be that they went on strike to increase there pay and benefits which explains another reason for not receive a Christmas trinket. I would imagine having two strikes in one year would strap any business even if it's in the healthcare field. Just my opinion, for what it's worth!

Yes I can believe that but that is the doctors fault and not the employees. They work very hard and even harder when that doctor is working. They deserve a little appreciation from their employer for the hard work they do. Especially at Christmas time.

No they went on strike because they work under contract and they didn't have a contract to work under because ARH would not come up with one to sign. I know several people that work there and they did not want to be out of a job but ARH left them with no choice. The night they went on strine they were pretty much escorted out of the building.

I understand that the contract ended, but in the end did they not receive anything with the new one? Historically, when a new contract is signed there is some sort of improvement or increase that comes with it.

As far as being escorted out of the building, I believe most employers do that when one's employment has ended.
