the NLRB. Teamsters rep-
resentatives disagreed, say-
ing they will petition the
Michigan Department of
Labor for an election if Mr.
Cockrell rules favorably for
UHS management.
A decision from Mr.
Cockrell is expected within
the next two weeks.
This is not the first time
UHS workers have peti-
tioned for union represen-
tation. Sixty-five employees
who would be eligible to join
such a union twice last year
voted against joining the
Amalgamated Transit
Union.
"This (union drive) hap-
pens on and off," said UHS
Director of Transportation
Matt Kamins. "It's not un-
usual when you have a lot of
people working somewhere
who bring union experience.
We are on the top end of pay
and benefits, and we com-
pare favorably with other
transportation companies."
At the UHS garage in Oak
Park, employees do not com-
plain about the pay or the
benefits available. But some
say management uses fa-
voritism tactics and that all
employees do not enjoy the
top benefits packages.
Management officials say
this is not true.
Since Mr. Vitale received
his first call from an em-
ployee six months ago, three
bus drivers have filed unfair
labor practice charges
against UHS with the
National Labor Relations
Board. To date, no action
has been taken on the
claims.
"Favoritism does not play
a part in our procedures. We
have a set of thresholds that
employees must meet to get
benefits. They are employed
uniformly," Mr. Kamins
said. "Similar complaints
were filed in the last union
drive, and all were dis-
missed."
Among those filing a com-
plaint is driver-trainer Joyce
Chambers, who disputed
UHS officials' claims that
they fairly present pay scale
and benefits to all employ-
ees. She also alleged that
some employees get better
insurance coverage than
others. UHS officials said in-
surance coverage is equi-
table.
"We need some kind of
representation from the out-
side to facilitate and negoti-
ate things so people are not

taken for granted," says Ms.
Chambers, who is on a 30-
day suspension for what she
believes stems from union
organizing. She is charged
with stealing company doc-
ument files and passing
them along to another em-
ployee. She says the allega-
tions are bogus.
Mr. Kamins said he is not
at liberty to discuss the sus-
pension, but added it was
unrelated to union activity.
After the last union at-
tempt, UHS set up a five-
person employee committee
to help handle grievances,
work reviews and to negoti-
ate wages and benefits.
"We have an active em-
ployee's association," Mr.
Kamins said. "But it is the
employee's right to have out-
side representation if they
would like."
UHS
transportation
workers would not be the
first Jewish organization to
join a union. Employees of
several Jewish Federation
of Metropolitan Detroit
agencies, including teachers,
mental health workers, and
some Federation employees
at the Max Fisher Building
in Bloomfield Township, are
members of unions. ❑

BORMAN HALL page 1

The reprieve for Borman
Hall followed two state in-
spections since August that
cited the facility with four
serious violations, called
Level A deficiencies.
In October, state inspec-
tors returned to Borman
Hall, removing one violation
concerning dietary service,
but adding a major violation
in the area of infection con-
trol. Open wounds on pa-
tients were not being treat-
ed properly, inspectors said.
Violations also were found
in areas of quality of life of
the patients and medical
care.
Just days after the second
inspection, Home for Aged
and Jewish Federation lead-
ers created a committee to
work to remove the defi-
ciencies. The Federation-
Borman team also is
assessing the possibility of
opening a new West
Bloomfield facility.
The proposed facility re-
ceived a required certificate
of need from the state two
weeks ago. ❑
