Several hundred members of the 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East in addition to members of the community, elected officials and representatives from other labor unions marched at Castle Hill Health Care Center in Union City, New Jersey on July 8, 2009. The Rally for Justice was called in support of workers from four New Jersey nursing homes who have been struggling for a contract since 2007. Multimillionaire Avery Eisenreich, owner of the Omni chain of nursing homes, has refused to settle a fair contract that provides workers with a living wage.
