DETROIT (Map)- DETROIT, June 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- Albert Garrett, President of Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO, issued the following statement:

"Fountain View of Monroe is a for profit nursing home facility in Monroe, Michigan and is a subsidiary of nursing home conglomerate Ciena Healthcare Management. In an effort to break the nurses' union, Fountain View has illegally terminated many of the nurses who support the union and has threatened to fire the rest," stated Garrett. "In 2003, the nurses at Fountain View voted unanimously to organize as a union. They became organized as AFSCME Local 1548 affiliated with Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO.

"AFSCME has filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Fountain View of Monroe has been under investigation for its alleged illegal activity for months," Garrett continued.

"Management at Fountain View of Monroe has started a vicious campaign against the nurses. Recently, the employer has terminated or transferred every union official and union steward," Garrett added. "According to the allegations being investigated it even unjustifiably denied health insurance coverage to a new born baby of a union steward because of its disdain for the nurses.

"It has also started terminating other pro-union nurses and hiring nurses that it believes will not be pro-union. It is paying the newly hired nurses above union rates and refusing to deduct union dues from the newly hired nurses. It fostered an attempt to have the new nurses vote out the union," Garrett pointed out. "This effort failed because a large majority of nurses continued to desire to collectively bargain over their work conditions.

Total world spending on military expenses in 2006 was $1.158 trillion US dollars. Nearly half of this total, 528.7 billion US dollars, was spent by the United States. The privatization of the production and invention of military technology also leads to a complicated relationship with significant research and development of many technologies.

The Military budget of the United States for the 2009 fiscal year was $515.4 billion. Adding emergency discretionary spending and supplemental spending brings the sum to $651.2 billion. This does not include many military-related items that are outside of the Defense Department budget. Overall the United States government is spending about $1 trillion annually on defense-related purposes.
