CINCINNATI (AP) - An employees’ demonstration calling for full staffing and improved working conditions is scheduled at the federal Veterans Administration medical center in Cincinnati.

Members of Local 2031 of the American Federation of Government Employees scheduled the demonstration Friday at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center.

A union release says understaffed facilities and gross mismanagement are harmful to veterans. Local union president Charles Smith says employees haven’t seen the changes outlined in last year’s VA legislation take shape in Cincinnati.

A spokeswoman for the Cincinnati VA Medical Center says it has no higher priority than ensuring that veterans access the high-quality care they’ve earned. Spokeswoman Denise Kerr (kur) says the facility has worked with union leaders regarding their concerns and will continue to do so.
