Governor Cuomo Directs Department of Labor to Issue Notice to Hospitals Following Allegations of Threatening and Coercive Behavior at Albany Med


Governor Cuomo: "I Am Proud to Stand with the Men and Women in Our Hospitals and Support Safe Staffing Levels that Ensure the Highest Quality of Care"

"Healthcare Is a Critical Priority and this Administration Will Do Everything We Can to Protect Medicaid State Funding and Quality Patient Care"

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed the New York State Department of Labor to issue a notice to hospitals to support safe staffing and continued organizing, following allegations of threatening and coercive behavior at Albany Medical Center ahead of a vote by registered nurses there to join the New York State Nurses Association. The notice reminds hospitals that there are laws, both state and federal, and regulations governing union organizing efforts and that hospitals that illegally try to prevent or dissuade personnel from unionizing will be held accountable.
