Union workers, Maloney rally to stop Manhattan VA hospital closure


Congressmember Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) joined with government union workers and veterans on Monday outside the Manhattan VA Medical Center to protest a recent Veterans Affairs report that recommends closing the facility and outsourcing its services to nearby hospitals.

In response to the proposed cost-cutting measures, the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents the medical center employees, called on members of Congress to take action to prevent the VA from enacting the recommendations. Maloney joined the rally and pledged to help stop the closure.
