Bronx Psychiatric Center Staff to Rally Against Layoffs

Workers at the Bronx Psychiatric Center, a 360-bed facility in Morris Park, will hold a rally tomorrow afternoon to protest recent layoffs.

According to a flyer sent to the press by the workers' union:

Fiscal and administrative mismanagement has... created a critical and dangerous situation for patients and workers. Workplace violence is on the rise. Direct Care workers are being laid off while more managers, earning double their salaries, are being hired. This madness must end!
The flyer is embedded below.

The Bronx Psychiatric Center, which is run by the state, has been in the news a fair bit this year. A patient was charged with attempting to rape a counselor.  Another patient claimed he was molested by a staff member who turned out to be a convicted sex offender. There was also a bedbug infestation.
