BATTLE CREEK, MI (WKZO) -  A group of Battle Creek labor leaders, a member of the Nurse’s Association and representatives from other social justice groups will hold a news conference today in Battle Creek to criticize Borgess Healthcare for building their new Ambulatory Care facility with non-union labor, brought in from outside the community.  

Spokesman Joshua Pugh says one labor union has been picketing the construction site on Capital S.W. for several days.  They say Borgess has contracted with only two local contractors and one Union Contractor, and that’s not enough.
